Photography: Summer in Quarantined New York, Part 11

Photography: Summer in Quarantined New York, Part 11

Yesterday, I had to go to the post office to mail my new lease to my landlord. I hate my landlord because they’re cheap, stupid and greedy (among countless other things), but I’ve lived in a rent stabilized apartment since the day my folks took me home back in April 1979 — April 1, 1979 to be precise — and it’s what I can afford. It’s four walls, a floor and a ceiling and it beats being outside.

Oddly, for the first time in several months, there wasn’t a long line. So, it wound up being a relatively quicker errand than what I expected. I had my camera with me in case I somehow got inspired to capture anything — and because it was a gorgeous late summer afternoon, I wanted to have some sunlight on my skin. I didn’t take a lot of photos but honestly, that was besides the point.

A Slice of Sky, Part 4: There was something about the fluffiness of these clouds against an unreal cerulean blue that captured my eye.

Park City Estates: The lines of the building and its odd, imposing, utilitarian vibe captured my eye. It seemed kind of Kafka-esque to me.

Sure wearing a mask and having a thick, course beard is a weird experience. I’m blessed — and maybe cursed — to have a baby face, so even with the beard, people sometimes doubt how old I really am. But still, as I’ve said countless times on this site, if your’e out in public and are uncertain that you can socially distance, PUT ON A FUCKING MASK OR SOME KIND OF COVERING TO LESSEN THE SPREAD OF COVID-19. It’s small and very easy sacrifice for all us to eventually get back to doing the things we all love to do.
