...that did not make it into previous posts: the sweepings, if you will:
The old New York Port Authority Grain Terminal, in Red Hook.
Scaffolding built for someone's vegetable and herb garden to raise it up into the sun out of a dark alleyway.
Ripe pokeweed. The cooked juice is apparently edible, the raw, poisonous, but reports are conflicting. They sure look delicious. At Storms River Mouth in South Africa I have them to thank for my only sighting of a Knysna lourie (now known as a turaco) in February this year. The gorgeous bird was eating them beside the path and flew off as we approached.
Apparently how the police arrive in Red Hook, when called.
