adventures in reflective surfaces
Wal-Mart Parking lot, December 2000
My parents live near Lompoc, California, down south toward Santa Barbara.Christmas 2000 I drove down from Berkeley, which is usually around 5 hoursor so if I stop to eat. There's a big Wal-Mart that I always pass,somewhere down past Gilroy. I often stop; this time I had to pee and Iwanted to buy something (a snack? a cd? I can't remember). I passed thiscar, with its Darwin fish magnet and "Jesus Loves You, Everybody ElseThinks You're An Asshole" bumpersticker, so I had to take a snap. I didn'trealize that I'd be in the shot.
