Photography: Summer in Quarantined New York

Photography: Summertime in Quarantined New York

Last night, I got a last minute ride — and it was a wonderful occasion to get out of my neighborhood and to take some photos. So because of the Summer Solstice, we’ll tentatively call this Summertime in Quarantined New York. This nighttime photo session included stops at Nathan’s Famous on Coney Island and Time Square. And yes, I had a hot dog, some bacon cheese fries and an enormous Coney Island Mermaid Pilsner because that’s what you’re supposed to do while out there! Of course, I would have preferred to be out there for the Mermaid Parade — but at the moment, beggars can’t be choosers.

Check out photos below.

I managed to capture this one, a few seconds before they closed and turned off the lights.

Bacon cheese fries. I missed them, I really did.

Seeing this in Times Square was powerful on a deeply personal level: ALL. BLACK. LIVES. MATTER.

Since the spring. flowers in town have seen much more vibrant than what I can ever remember. Also, to my eye, it seems like there are more flowers around, too. For me though, it reminds me that there’s beauty even in the most bleak of times.

How about a car mirror selfie? I managed to get a really cool car mirror picture on the Williamsburg Bridge, and since then I’ve been desperately trying to recreate it/come up with something equally cool.
