  • "Its my birthday and my boyfriend just broke up with me." That's what she said when we locked eyes as i walked past. Then she cried some more. Her friend saw my camera and asked if i would take a group picture of them all, unaware that i had already popped off five or six on the walk up. The smiles that followed were well rehearsed and in a mildly drunken way, sincere.
