On the rare occasion when I’m not writing, sometimes I take pictures of strangers without them knowing and submit those pictures to literary journals. Yemassee, the literary journal of the University of South Carolina’s MFA creative writing program, just accepted one of those pictures. Yemassee’s current edition features Junot Diaz. His writing is no stranger to me. Strong. But the burly, black fisherman from El Dorado Park whose picture I took is a stranger to me. The picture below is not the picture that was accepted, but features the burly, black fisherman. He looks like a nice man. I’m sure he wouldn’t mind.
