Day One Hundred Seventy Four

174/365. Controlling light is an art ~ Me (I said this, right now)

take a hit (looks great large)

 

So.... this is me... playing with flying sparks! Clearly not doing a great job at "controlling light" — but I never claimed to be a firefighter.

 

Anyhow, tonight I was given attention by three different people. One guy who wanted to sell me "energy drinks" for six bucks each. He had three; all of which he pulled from his pocket. Weird. Then he asked me where he could get film developed for cheap. Um... "Walgreens?"

 

The next guy just wanted to watch. I can usually handle a hundred people watching... but one guy with nobody else around is a little more awkward. I just stood there and waited until he left.

 

Then the third guy randomly had a 40 gallon plastic bag full of woman's clothes.

 

man: "hey, I'll take your photo"

 

me: "no thanks, it has a timer."

 

man: "but you won't have to run back and forth — just let me do it!"

 

me: "It actually has an 'interval timer'."

 

man: "All you fuckin' artists are all alike"

 

me: "You're right. Thanks for understanding."
