June 18, 2020

These were shots taken a week before NYC began its reopening. People were beginning to crowd the streets again and the city was returning to its previous vigor. Taken at Williamsburg Bridge while I was crossing the bridge by foot during the dusk of June 18, 2020.

First glimpse of the year 2020
January 3, 2020

I have high hopes for the coming year, so much so I woke early to take photos of the first sunrise of 2020. The night before I celebrated New Year’s Eve with friends and family, hoping for a prosperous and peaceful coming year. The next day, as I was waiting hopefully at the Brooklyn Bridge, the sun never showed up. Only to realize later this year that it was a preview of what is to come, gloomy and dark year ahead.
