They Turn Out
Saturday. Not a bad day: a couple of Tylenol seem to have cleared the head, a walk down to the nearby sidewalk cafe to order a ham and swiss sandwich for lunch only to be brought a tuna fish sandwich because I always order a tuna fish sandwich and they heard “tuna fish” when I said “ham”. I believe this is not only an indication I'm in a rut but that I am able to give a kind of “contact rut” to the people around me, not unlike a “contact high”. They somehow picked up on the “Swiss cheese”, though: there was Swiss cheese on my tuna, although I always order my tuna fish straight with just the right amount of mercury on the side. Excitement enough on a Saturday.

Even you have to wince after reading that.

I don't know, some of the cogs in the brain seemed to fall into place today like a lock on a vault, the little tumblers going ”click-click-click”. An epiphany while looking through the Picasso books at the local used book store. Weird. But let's not talk about it - Picasso of all people - I'll let it lie and get ready for the motorcycle races tomorrow. I'm curious to see how they turn out.

The photograph was taken at the San Francisco Gay Pride parade with a Nikon D2x mounted with a 70-200mm f 2.8 Nikkor lens at 1/400th second at f 3.5 at ISO 200.
