RED BANK: A DATE WITH DESTINY?

rb-dates-092816accidentalphotographerredbankgreen’s Accidental Photographer came upon this scene of scattered and mashed dates on West Front Street in Red Bank Wednesday. No clue how they got there.

The photo cries out for a witty caption. Got one? (Photo by Trish Russoniello. Click to enlarge)

ACCIDENTAL PHOTO: TRACKING THE WEATHER

hubbard 010615Oh, the irony: Someone put an indoor ski machine out on the curb on Hubbard Avenue in Middletown just in time for the first snowfall of 2015.

The snow should end by 5 p.m. with an accummulation of less than two inches, the National Weather Service says. (Photo by Trish Russoniello. Click to enlarge)

MIDDLETOWN: WIRY CHARACTER SIGHTED

A CHANCE MEETING ON THE STREET

redbankgreen‘s Accidental Photographer stumbled upon this busted-frame portrait just as you see it on River Road in Red Bank Saturday evening: on the ground, leaning against a pole, all by its lonesome.

What could it mean that it was out there? (Click to enlarge)

SPLITTING THE PROFITS, TOO?

ACCIDENTAL PHOTOGRAPHER

Spotted by redbankgreen‘s Accidental Photographer at Garden State Auto Repair on Branch Avenue in Little Silver, this 1963 Rambler Classic seems to be saying something to passersby. But what?

With a blue tarp draped over its open hood creating the illusion of eternal blue skies ahead, and the blow-up globe in the back window — not to mention its name — this old jalopy seems to embody a wandering, open and hopeful spirit.

Or maybe that’s just us, feeling a little TGIF-y. What’s your take on it?

Have a great weekend, folks.

ACCIDENTAL PHOTOGRAPHER: WEED WHACKER

Just north of Point Road Elementary School on Seven Bridges Road in Little Silver, the weeds needed a trim. Enter Wayne Elsbree (aka Mohawk Wayne), who struck a pose for redbankgreen’s Accidental Photographer Friday morning as he tamed the roadside overgrowth.

Could Monmouth County have sent a more apt stylist for the job?

ON ICE

It’s beginning to look like winter out on the Shrewsbury River.

redbankgreen‘s accidental photographer captured this northward view of a dredge Thursday from the Rumson-Sea Bright Bridge, where a bridgetender told us the river has not frozen solid since 1996.

Is it likely to freeze soon?

FOLIAGE OF A DIFFERENT COLOR

OK, this season’s leaves aren’t as pale as this one, found yesterday on  newly painted pavement lines at Seven Bridge and Point Roads in Little Silver.

But if it seems the crop of fallen leaves isn’t as overall  crimson and radiant gold as in years past, all that rain we had this summer may be the culprit. According to the United States National Arboretum, heavy rain may cause the leaves to be lost before they develop their full color potential.

And speaking of rain, how would you like a weekend without any? That’s what appears to be on tap — a seemingly rare run of sunshiney days.
