Photography: New York AIDS Memorial and Union Square Park 5/26/21

Yesterday, I met up with a friend, who lives in the West Village and unsurprisingly, I had my new Canon 6D Mark II with me — with the hopes that I might catch something interesting before the night’s drinking and carrying on started. Check out some photos below.

Caption: New York AIDS Memorial at New York AIDS Memorial Park at St. Vincent’s Triangle. The small park just across the street from Lenox Hill/Northwell (formerly St. Vincent’s Hospital) is a gorgeous little park — but by far the memorial, which was built to honor the over 100,000 who died of AIDS is haunting.

Caption: These two murals face each other on opposite sides of an empty lot on 14th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues. I love the bright colors and the old school hip-hop imagery.

Caption: Human QR Code, Union Square Park. I’ve seen some characters in Union Square Park lately — and once the eccentrics come out, it feels like nature has slowly started to heal. Things are getting back to some level of normal.
