Just Launched: EPA Gowanus Canal Facebook Page Photo Contest

IMG_6455
This is cool. Environmental Protection Agency's Region 2 has launched a monthly photo and video contest on its Facebook page. I just submitted the photo above. Make sure you send in yours.
 Here are the details:

 "Please share your photos and videos here on EPA's Facebook page as we look for the Photo/Video of the Month during 2012. Photos/videos should show how conditions at the Canal are now, how the canal is being used by the community or how you see its future.
Getting things started for January 2012 is Eymond Diegel's October 2011 photo of a striped bass near the Union Street bridge. Feel free to "like" and comment on the photos and videos which are posted."

Do you have to join Facebook to see, participate? I tried your link and they wanted me to sign in. I don't want to join Facebook. Unfortunate.

I am sure I can forward your photo to the EPA so that they can put it up for you. Just email me the photo at pardonmeinbrooklyn at gmail dot com.

What on earth is that thing in the bottom photograph? A dead duck?

I think it's the striped bass. Personally, I think it's a pretty creepy image.
