Spectacular Ending (Regular Season)
They were dancing in the streets last night! Kobe scored sixty points in his last Mamba dance in the NBA. Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors set a new NBA record for most wins in a season. Give me a drink and let's get to partying.
People want to be distracted from the horrors of the everyday world. There are many.
I got two rolls of film back from processing yesterday. I was anxious to see the images, of course. Out of the twenty-four, one of them is almost O.K. I can't seem to make an interesting picture any more. I am not sure what is wrong. I have improved technically. I mean I can make decent exposures and I am able to approach strangers pretty well now. Beyond that, though. . . there is little. I have some ideas, but it all takes a lot of work, and I already have a lot of work. I miss the studio terribly, but I have to get over it. This is the new reality. Achieve or be forgotten.
I have been mostly forgotten now. As it should be.
If I were to guess, I'd say that this picture was taken the day the Chicago Bulls set the old NBA record for most wins in a season in the late '90s. It must be in our genetic composition. People do much the same thing when they see a camera. The kid didn't even need a beer. Probably. Maybe.
I don't know.
