Under the bridge
It’s funny how some photos, or the tangent on which some photos take me, trigger memories. The title of this post is the title of a song by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I heard them on stage at the 1992 Lollapalooza concert in Vancouver. It was at UBC Thunderbird Stadium. I wasn’t there to hear them; I was there to hear Jesus and Mary Chain. I thought of myself as a real punk kid back then and the fact that I was going to see this band at this festival, a band very few of my friends had heard of, made me think I was incredibly cool. It turned out that there were a lot of people who wanted to see them – they were on the mainstage after all.
The Chilis took the stage as the headliners at the end of the night. Their show was great. So, eighteen years later I take a photo of an underpass. One year after that, I process that photo and it takes me back to the summer of 1992. Weird.
