Photo Post – Pandemic Summer

A few times this summer I cautiously emerged from quarantine to do some longer photowalks. When the Smithsonian National Zoo reopened in August, we spent a morning wandering and taking pictures. Recently we spent some time with the birds, turtles, frogs, and other creatures at Huntley Meadows, a local marshland park with a name out of a dime-novel murder mystery.

Below are a few shots from both trips and more can be found at the other end of the links above. Hopefully more will be coming soon as we figure out what can be done outside of the house, while still avoiding the virus.

Photo Post – The Mill

Last month I broke quarantine for a day to go on a socially-distant, masked, small-group photoshoot in a 19th century woolen mill in southern Pennsylvania. While the building appears to be from the latter part of that century, the equipment in place looks to be more recent, maybe from the 1930’s and 40’s.

Here are a few images from my day and more are in this gallery.

Picturing School In A Pandemic

Earlier this week, the Post’s Class Struggle blog featured some remarkable pictures of kids in schools around the world.

The column doesn’t offer much context other than the location, but some images like these of kindergartners, the first in Bankok, Thailand, the second in Indonesia, are enough to make you cry.

Photo Post – Auto Show

I really don’t care about cars, and I find most of the Auto Show rather dull. I mean, how many different variations on an SUV can companies create?

However, the annual event here in DC does provide an opportunity to make some interesting photos. A few of my images from a short visit to the show last week are below (click to see a larger version) and more are in my Flickr feed.

Photo Post – Museum Tourist

The newest Smithsonian museum, the National Museum of African American History and Culture, has been open for more than three years but this week was my first visit. Until recently, visitors on most days needed advanced passes due to the crowds. Which made my habit of just dropping in harder.

Anyway, here are a few of my photos from a very short, less than two hour visit. Click each to see the larger version. More images are in this gallery and I’ll be adding more when I return soon to explore this impressive space and collection in more depth.
