Directions

I’m poking around in the road construction debris looking for a shot. An SUV pulls up, stops in the middle of the road and a guy, 30ish, rolls down the window. “Hey, if someone is told ‘You should check out Capitol Hill’, where would they go? Is that it?” he points back down the hill, “Just Broadway?” There’s a woman in the passenger seat beside him.

I pause and try to decide the context of the hypothetical person’s hypothetical “checking out”.

“Well, you could also try 15th, or perpendicular to both Broadway and 15th, you can head down Pike and Pine.”

“Okay,” he says skeptically, “We’ll try Fifteenth. Thanks.” He drives away.

I walk back across the street and take this photo.
