Photography: Summer in Quarantined New York Part 2

Photography: Summer in Quarantined New York Part 2

We’ve just passed the second full week of summer and this season has been deeply disappointing for all the reasons it should be: COVID-19 related lockdowns have reduced options and opportunities for so many. If you’re seething with rage and dissatisfaction,  you’re probably  going out of your mind with boredom — or it’s a mix of both.

I haven’t been leaving my apartment as often,  and as a result, I haven’t been shooting as much. Worse yet, I feel as though I’m in a bit of a creative rut.

So this particular part of the series includes a return to Coney Island and some random shots in my neighborhood. Check out photos below.

There was something abuot the neon, the candy in the window and the workers behind the window that caught my attention. It’s a sight that seems older than time; and as a result of COVID-19 restrictions, it’s a scene that I’ve sorely missed.

This candy shop is right next door to Nathan’s and its name never seemed to cross my mind — until I looked at it. It inspired a goofy laugh. Did they name this after me? rOh. I know, it’s unlikely — but still , . .

The flowers in my neighborhood have a vivid color that at times seem just unreal.
