yesterday was freakin crazy. storm and andrew came down, and anduin and frank from Bow Ever Down, then I had to photograph Shukria Barakzai, the Afghani womens rights activist and magazine editor, then Mike and Rachel's bbq, then Vitalij came over. yikes. Storm and i photographed under the el for, literally, two minutes. then it just became impossible. cars were stopping, blocking traffic, people came pouring out of buildings. it was like a space ship had landed. the best comment from an incredulous driver who stopped right in the middle of market street to gawk out his window while people blared horns at him: "is she real? is she a robot? like a robot from a store?"
