A Buck in a Guitar Case

a distinct odor
a buck in a guitar case
exchanging smiles

I walked right by this group of teens and twenty-somethings originally, but something compelled me to turn back around. I walked up and threw a dollar in the guitar case even though no one was playing guitar. I assume the majority of the group was homeless judging by the smell and their generally disheveled appearance. I shouted a request to get a snapshot, and thought they said no at first, so I started to walk away. Then they started motioning me back, I slipped off my headphones (shouldn’t have been wearing them in the first place) and he said “Why did you take off so quick?” I replied “I thought you said you didn’t want any pictures.” His response was “I didn’t dress up like this for nothing, you can take my picture!”  and I did and now you are looking  at it, and I successfully shared his smile with the world, at least the people in the world that take the time to look at this blog. I want to spread the humanness across broadband and WiFi signals, reaching the living brains at the end of the connections, illiciting a response. I’ve actually had photography teachers tell me they HATE it when people smile at their cameras. I couldn’t imagine why. Smiling is infectious and it’s free and they make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Social Deviance on the D Line

j_nix_streetwork (1 of 1)-463

I got sidetracked and jumped on the wrong train.

 I got off at the Sheridan station and saw these two guys dancing and gyrating on the platform. 

 I couldn’t hear them though. I was buried in my headphones too. 

 They worked together. One rapped, while the other bobbed his head and interjected a few 

 YEAH BITCH’s in there. 

 None of us made eye contact. 

 None of us said a word. 

 The girl read her book as if nothing was going on.

I think she may have been intimidated

 or maybe she just didn’t really care. 

the bitches in the pool

the bitches in the pool

out of the ordinary 

not the norm

the social deviants

are everywhere

challenging the status quo
