FIELD NOTES


QUARANTINE: NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH 2020

When Covid-19 started in March, I like everyone else thought it my only last a few weeks, maybe a month, right? Well by May I was obviously very wrong and due to social distancing protocols, I opted to take advantage of the warming weather in Arlington, Virginia (where we lived at the time). Seth and I took daily walks through our neighborhood and I’d bring along my old beginner camera and photograph whatever I liked. It was kind of like when you sign up for a beginner photographer course and they structure the assignments only so much that you feel like you have some freedom but also needed guidance. I became fond of birds, as you can see. Seemed to be the only thing moving about at that time.
