Boise

I went home for Thanksgiving, which means Boise. This trip was very different from my Salt Lake excursions. My theme "Intrusion of Space." didn't seem to fit as well here, because as much as I was trying to invade territory, nobody seemed to mind. I think another thing that was different about this day was the fact that I was using my 28-135mm lens, so I didn't have to stand so close to people in order to get their picture. So I may have accidentally sabotaged the point of my own project by lens choice.

“May I take your picture” This guy didn’t miss a beat. “yes” I sat down in the chair right in front of him and waited for him to put the cigarette back in his mouth. He didn’t acknowledge me at all after I asked him for a picture. He seemed to be too enthralled in his work.

“Hey can I take your picture?” “Do you want our picture because we’re from Salt Lake?” “uh… no. It’s ok guys, you don’t have to smile.” As it turns out they were headed to an anime convention.

“May I take your picture?” “Fine.” “Thank You.” After the picture he tries to walk into a building. A nice Asian man comes out of the door and starts talking to him. “Dude I don’t speak Taiwanese!”

I took the nice Asian man’s picture.

“May I take your picture?” “Sure” “Thank you very much.” “My Pleasure, have a great day!”
