Connection, Thy Name is Vanity

IMAG0492_1Vain + Alone in Austin, Texas.

The camera perched on the top of a Mini Cooper, stabilized by a water bottle and my wallet.

Afterwards, a man named Tracy – a local sound/lighting/backline guy and six sheets to the wind – let me know he’d watched me doing the multiple takes and gave me a fist bump for my efforts.  I was a little embarrassed having been caught, but in a town that literally drowns in vain people every year during SXSW, Tracy must’ve seen his fair share and thought it cute I was labouring to take a cool pic.  Of myself.  By myself.  

He just really had to tell me.  Vanity helps connect people.
