My photo is of an empty New York City garbage can, turned upside down¹. Keep New York City Clean, a veritable oxymoron if not desperate plea, is printed in white letters on the green can. Strewn about is litter and leaves, no doubt because of Hurricane Sandy.

My contribution for this Weekly Photo Challenge was taken in Prospect Park, the beautiful 585-acre historic public park in Brooklyn that spans many neighborhoods and is responsible for many memories.

I captured two small children playing vigorously on a mound while the sun sets, silhouetting their active figures. Their parents came shortly after and took them home for a shower and dinner.
