Featured Photo: Rural Past by the Belt


(Photo courtesy of Lisanne Anderson)

There is nothing very unique about the photographic nature of this shot, but in its simplicity is something rare. Lisanne Anderson’s title explains this photo as “Another Suggestion of Sheepshead Bay’s Rural Past.” Sheepshead Bay’s quiet, laid-back, sleepytown feel is increasingly becoming lost amidst the bold development. So, it is nice to look at a photograph such as this one and appreciate its anonymity, with hopes that it will remain undiscovered as a blast from the past.
