Photography: Springtime in Quarantined New York Part 6
Yesterday, I ran a small errand for my mom, who’s going in for a surgical procedure tomorrow and went for a walk though Flushing Meadows-Corona Park. Honestly, I’ve basically photographed everything of any real interest in the neighborhoods of Forest Hills, Rego Park and Corona. Because public transportation at this point is seen as being rather risky and only for those frontline and essential workers, who need to keep you safe, alive, with electricity and with food on your plate, my journeys outside have been reduced to where I could walk — and with plantar fasciitis, some days are great for walking and others, I wind up being in a lot of pain. But I do what I can.
So yesterday’s soundtrack was all Jef Barbara and his* excellent two albums 2013’s Soft to the Touch and 2012’s Contamination. Check out the playlist and the photos below.
*FYI: After the release of Soft to the Touch and its subsequent press push, Barbara disappeared for a couple of years. As it turns out, during that period, the Montreal-based artist transitioned and has become a trans rights activist.
