Photography: Springtime in Quarantined New York Part 3

Over the past roughly 40-45 days or so, New Yorkers and countless others across the world have been self-isolating and observing social distancing to help slow down the spread of COVID-19. My mom is in the high risk category — because of her age and a health condition — and as a result, I’ve made every attempt to be as careful as humanly possible. I’ve only left my apartment building for food and beer and to the pharmacy for mom’s medications and for an occasional walk to get some exercise, fresh air and to clear my mind a bit.

Yesterday, I took a long walk through my neighborhood of Corona and Flushing Meadows-Corona Park with my Canon 77D and a trippy yet danceable soundtrack that included Malibu Ken and Shalamar.

I’m continually drawn to Flushing Meadows-Corona Park’s Unisphere. Of course, it’s one of my home borough’s most iconic locations — but it has a deeper symbolism that’s even more relevant in our bleak and uncertain times. May there finally be peace, understanding and brotherhood and sisterhood for all!

Tulips are a wonderful reminder that despite the bleak and uncertain nature of our world but it also reminds me of beautiful Amsterdam. I hope to see Amsterdam again after all of this.

Corona Loves You. Always.
