I’ve lived in the Richmond District for 12 years, not far from a section of Clement Street known as San Francisco’s “other Chinatown.” The location provides easy access to fortune cookies, often sold in quantities of 50-100. There has been little price inflation since I first started buying them for $0.99 a bag. Cheaper than chips and with equal nutritional value (not much), these cookies have made a great accompaniment to many a lunch. The happy by-product of all this? I’m the luckiest guy around.

Photographs were taken at the Whitmore Pool, a public swimming facility fed by natural hot springs just south of Mammoth Lakes. The text, as I expect you’ve guessed, came from a fortune cookie.
