I have begun to feel in this exercise like Auggie Wren in Smoke, every day photographing the same spot…
“But they’re all the same” says his friend Paul.
“They're all the same,” says Auggie, “but each one is different from every other one…Sometimes the same people, sometimes different ones. And sometimes the different ones become the same, and the same ones disappear.”
It’s all in the quality of the light. Kind of like my days.

(Searching the script for this section, I’m struck by how often the word light appears. Of course lighting up is an integral part of smoking.)
