Weekly Photo Challenge: The Sign Says, Take Two

By Vladimir Brezina

This week’s Photo Challenge is The Sign Says.

Kayaking out on open water, we meet few signs. But as soon as we come in to land, signs abound. Some of them do their best to be unavoidable. Nevertheless, we sometimes manage to avoid them—

Some years ago, Erik Baard and I paddled down from Manhattan and landed on the beach near the northwestern tip of Sandy Hook. We had a leisurely lunch, took a stroll along the beach, lazed about, and after a couple of hours were ready to paddle back to Manhattan. But just before we launched, we thought that we might, just out of curiosity, find out what those two big signs that stood there, facing away from us, said…

  10. Maybe it’s really for keeping you from visiting the nude sunbathers in Sandy Hook! Oh no that’s right, Superstorm Sandy wiped that out too! Ugh! That girl was vicious!

  23. I love that picture of you! Although it does make you look a bit like a mad scientist. On second thought, maybe you ARE a mad scientist.
