Magie (also known as Iceland, or my beautiful friend from grad school who sometimes has me stand in abandoned sheds or fields so she can capture something only she sees) IS IN LA! Scouting locations for upcoming fashion shoots. So today, I get to explore my own hood and nearby hoods, scavenge through my own streets. I get to drive her around and pretend like I can also spot good sites, by which I mean, HEY MAGIE LOOK GRAFITI and HEY LOOK! SOMEBODY MADE A GIRAFFE OUT OF PAPER MACHE AND PUT IT ON TOP OF THEIR HOUSE! but also sometimes, Magie looking for the thing is the thing itself.
