Photography: Summer in Quarantined New York Part 4

I’ve been adhering to COVID-19 social distancing guidelines since the beginning of this pandemic — and as a result, it means I’ve generally been in my apartment or relegated to what I can do within reasonable walking distance without a car. Yesterday, I was sitting in my apartment, and I was getting antsy. I wanted to look at something else other than my four walls. So I went to for a walk with the hopes of getting a proper pint of Guinness somewhere.

Sadly, that didn’t happen for a variety of very dumb, seemingly very Queens-like issues: namely, almost all the restaurants and bars in Forest Hills are cash only right now — and during a pandemic in which experts suggest that even handling cash is problematic. What’s with that? Since when does limiting the amount of money I can spend when you desperately need cash make sense?

But I brought my camera and was able to take some shots before getting caught in a brief thunderstorm. Check out some photos below.

A double rainbow — over a Mobil Gas Station and an American flag. Is there anything more — well, American?
