linda and i have a friend who's from hiroshima who's a photographer. when
she's in philly she's nuts for taking pictures, everything inspires her
but when she goes home to see her parents, she doesn't even take a camera,
she doesn't see any photos there. and there's certianly something to be
said for fresh places giving you ideas. for the last couple months i've
been looking through my house going "jeez, there's nothing here that i can
take a photo around."

could be both. but there's a way to meet interesting people, meet them. go
to a tattoo show. go to a meeting of the "second ammendment sisters".
those people are just out there waiting to be found.
