A Study in ShapesThanks for the good wishes yesterday when I was under the weather. Actually what happened was I had gone the day before for my annual TB test. They give you a little injection under the skin and then you go back 48-72 hours later to see if you develop what is called a wheal. I get my "official read" tomorrow (although I can tell it's negative), but for the first time in ten years, I suffered some side effects from the test and got a fever and some malaise. It was a good excuse to go to bed early and read.
These shots were taken over the weekend in downtown Long Beach at the Blue Cafe. I was waiting for some friends outside on the patio, trying to block out the shitty blues band that was playing inside, and got distracted by these circles and lines. It should be illegal to play the blues in broad daylight. The whole vibe says "night" to me. The second band was much better than the first. Maybe I'm still a little cranky from yesterday. Maybe.
