Do you know Gassy?
If that name doesn't ring a bell, then I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you just joined flickr. If that's the case rookie, you need to go to his stream now. Stop reading this and go. He's a living legend! A superhero of sorts. An inspiration to all that don the gas mask. The one and only - Gassy!
See Gassy and I are different. I wear fedoras, Gassy wears gas masks. I'm rough around the edges, Gassy is smooth as butta. I get blocked by half the people that encounter me on flickr, Gassy is loved by everyone. He's like a flickr version of Mister Rogers, you know? No, really I'm serious.
This is photo #1 of my "Dear Gassy, I Love You.. and Your Filthy Fucked Up City" series. I've actually shot like over a dozen Gassy tribute photos over the past year. I mean anything I do with a gas mask automatically becomes a Gassy tribute, right?
For all new to Gassy, when you go to his stream, you will likely encounter another guy named Hardy. You can spot him easily because he will not have a gas mask on. Ignore this man! As a matter of fact, don't even click on any photos unless you see someone wearing a gas mask in it from the thumbnail. You have been warned!
The photo at hand? My daughter and I in San Francisco at Fishermans Wharf about 6 months ago. You know, just walking around taking pictures with gas masks on and shit. Just another evening spent being bizarre just for you. Yeah! You motherfucker! You. That's right. Do you think I send this stupid shit to my mom or show it to a girl I'm trying to impress? Come on.
