i love being surprised by people. it doesn’t happen often. i saw jj crossing the street, and not to intrude, watched to see if i could catch his eye and politely ask for a picture. i was basically standing on a corner with a camera, and before i got a word out, he posed and asked for a snap. love it.
there’s something i’ve always admired about bike messengers. i’m not sure how to put it into words, but i was so flummoxed asking this guy for his pic, i didn’t even ask for his name. or if i did, i have no recollection. it was like talking with one of the cool kids… soooo junior high. but in the city, bike messengers are my cool kids. it’s a form of reverence. not only do they ride bikes in hazardous traffic situations… they look cool, have tattoos and drink a lot of coffee. and that guy’s shirt says ‘hella’. i *heart* bike messenger style… (sigh…)
this is tessa… having heard about how cute she dressed, i was delighted upon actually meeting her. mix of pattern, thrift, great finds for a steal… girl after my own heart. and that coat ! she found that at nordstrom rack. every girl could use a little shine. (sorry about the rain blobs !, it IS seattle)
