It has been an unprecedented week exploring the frontier out here in New Jersey. I miss New York.
The weather was pleasant this week. There were signs of spring. There were more comfortable days, even though a menacing specter was on the horizon.
The camera work was extremely light this week. The current issues of the day were taking over, and everything was being canceled. There were no events, headshots, or press conferences. The only thing happening were preparations for the inevitable national social distancing.
Pie one of the interesting was the pie day. I was supposed to have some exciting freelance camera work for the day, but current events got in the way. Sigh.
The shelves were emptying. People were panic shopping, adjusting for the time most people would have to hunker down and stay home. Many people were not handling their lifestyle changes well, but they were adapting.
You could tell the world was becoming a bit strange by the change in people’s actions.
Spring was still coming in full force through all of it. The temperature was warm enough for me to start seeing sakura. I took a bit of time with my 85mm lens to explore them for a bit, locally. You could see everyone keeping careful their distance. It was almost unnerving at times.
As the weekend ended, I stocked up on coffee and accepted I just had to keep calm, stay socially distant, wash my hands, and carry on.
