Dear Miss Heather, First, I’d like to say, I really enjoy your blog.  We have very similar interests, and have even posted similar images on our blogs. We’ve even taken some of the same pictures on the same day!  I’m sure one of these days our paths will cross as we trek through the borough exploring and taking pictures.  Anyway, I  photographed  this same Bushwick sign back on August 2nd as part of a ‘picture a day’ project I’m working on. This sign irks me  every time I walk past it.  When I saw your post today I had to laugh.  I have the image on my blog as well but never thought to ‘play’ with it in photoshop to express my true feelings towards it.  So here is my attempt to share what the signage says to me.  Hope you like it, and  thanks for the opportunity!  Keep smiling!

Thanks BT, this— and your kind words— made my day. In fact, I even feel a little inspired. Perhaps I’ll retool this advert for the Garden Spot? Williamsburg? Maspeth? Middle Village?!? The possibilities are endless!

Although I have featured this item already (albeit via a slide show) I have since decided something this cringe-worthy does, indeed, merit its own post. Here it is. Anyone care to perform a little Photoshop magic on this bad boy? If so, please send your masterpieces to: missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com.

Please keep your files at 1200 x 900 pixels or less. Thanks!

Miss Heather
