Photo taken when: Friday, November 13, aprx. 9 AM
Where: Diamond and Bosworth

Handjobbin’ is a photographic collective (learn more about it here) devoted to handjobbing things.*

Say the photographer: This has been a harrowing week full of sleepless nights, fun times, too much beer, and exasperating movie screenings. Today I woke up and decided not to get out of bed. But that was for like 7 minutes, then I remembered that I need the money. So drudge drudge drudge to BART with half-shut eyes and lo and behold I see this. I could cry.

Which reminds me, has anyone looked at that glossy Chron yet? How is it?

*one might argue that this is what most photographic collectives are devoted to, but this one is intended literally. Oh, we should probably also disclose that a couple of Appeal staffers are part of said collective, making this post a double (triple?) handjob.
