A woman is standing at a busy intersection—where Denny crosses over the freeway—reading the new Harry Potter book.
I did not ask if I could take this photo, because she was so far away and there were cars streaking between us. As we crossed in the intersection, I said, “How’s the book?” and she said, quickly, “It’s good.”
The next day, I’m walking by Rite Aid and I see this guy, evidently without a home, on the ground reading the new Harry Potter book.
I ask if I can take his photo and he says, “If you want.” I ask how the book is, and he says, “It’s good.”
The following evening at the Hideout is a party for the release of the new issue of Rivet. It looks as follows.
It includes the work of Ellen Forney, Brangien Davis, Jennifer Borges Foster, Susan Robb (a genius), and Jennifer Zeyl (also a genius). I asked the editor of Rivet, Leah Baltus, how the new issue is. The glow of a juke box behind her was lighting up her hair. She said, “It’s good.”
