A Photo A Day [Days 303-305]

Like a bird on the wire

You'd think from the looks of it that this is a nice, picturesque park overlooking the river and Philadelphia. Unfortunately, because it's located in New Jersey, the scenery is accompanied by a noxious odor of chemicals and pollution spewed into the air by the nearby manufacturing facilities and oil refinery. This poor bird probably doesn't have long to live after breathing in that stuff.

See how classy the area where I live is? Alas, this was not a celebrity death match but a plain old boxing match. For only $20 you could have watched a woman who gave birth to eight kids when she couldn't afford the ones she already had get punched in the face by a local DJ. Needless to say, in the interviews she did with the news she mentioned several times that she's doing it all for the money but refused to say how much she was getting paid.

Classy indeed!

The pictures of the bird and the pier are indeed lovely though.
