I don't know how it is where you are, but here in Holland it is hot!

This is a photograph by Usher Fellig, better known as Weegee (from Ouija Board).

Weegee's photos (taken in New York in the 30s) of crime scenes, car-wreck victims in pools of their own blood, overcrowded urban beaches and various grotesques are still shocking.

A famous quote of his is:

When you find yourself beginning to feel a bond between yourself and the people you photograph, when you laugh and cry with their laughter and tears, you will know you are on the right track.

A minister feels the same way.
