Smoke: Las fotografías de Auggie Wren

5.05.13

PAUL
Looks like someone forgot a camera.
AUGGIE
Yeah, I did.
PAUL
It’s yours?
AUGGIE
It’s mine all right. I’ve owned that little sucker for a long time.
PAUL
I didn’t know you took pictures.
AUGGIE
I guess you could call it a hobby. It doesn’t take me more than about five minutes a day to do it, but I do it every day. Rain or shine, sleet or snow. Sort of like the postman. Sometimes it feels like my hobby is my real job, and my job is just a way to support my hobby.
PAUL
So you’re not just some guy who pushes coins across a counter.
AUGGIE
That’s what people see, but that ain’t necessarily what I am.
PAUL
How’d you get started?
AUGGIE
Taking pictures?
It’s a long story. I’d need two or three drinks to get through that one.
PAUL
A photographer …
AUGGIE
Well, let’s not exaggerate. I take pictures. You line up what you want in the viewfinder and click the shutter. No need to mess around with all that artisto crap.
PAUL
I’d like to see your pictures some day.
AUGGIE
It can be arranged. Seeing as how I’ve read your books. I don’t see why I shouldn’t share my pictures with you. It would be an honor.

 


 

“Son todas iguales, pero cada una es diferente a la otra.
Tienes días despejados y días oscuros. Tienes luz de verano y luz de otoño. Tienes días entre semana y fines de semana. Tienes a gente con abrigos y con chaquetas y tienes a gente en camiseta y shorts. Algunas veces la misma gente, otras diferente. Y a veces la gente diferente se vuelven los mismos, y los mismos desaparecen. La tierra gira en torno al sol, y cada día la luz del sol cae sobre la tierra en un ángulo diferente.
 
PAUL
¿Más despacio, eh?

AUGGIE
Es lo que recomiendo”

Hoy lanzo una invitación a mirar a nuestro alrededor más despacio…
