Photography: Summer in Quarantined New York Part 7

Photography: Summer in Quarantined New York Part 7

I haven’t been going for as many walks as I was earlier this year. We’ve had a couple of heatwaves over the past few weeks that has made the idea of walking around — even if it’s to shoot — highly unpleasant. And I haven’t felt all that inspired. I’ve pretty much photographed all the interesting things I could in the neighborhood and until I feel safe enough to take public transportation any significant distance, I’m stuck with what I can reasonably walk to, unless the occasional ride comes up. Most of those rides have been with my mom for her various medical appointments.

Tomorrow’s weather is supposed to be really bad, so I wound up going downstairs to my courtyard with my camera for a few shots. Check it out below.

Black Eyed Susans. I’m such a city kid that I thought they were something else — until I was corrected. Regardless, there are a lot of flowers everywhere — some clearly dying, some full in bloom.

Another quarantine selfie.  And there’s a big lesson in this: when you’re out and about, put  on some kind of covering. It’s a simple, thoughtful and kind thing to do — and it’s a minor inconvenience.
