Helmet + Mask = The New Headgear
By now it’s pretty commonplace around Cambridge, Mass., to see people wearing protective headgear and masks on bicycles, scooters, mopeds, and even motorcycles. I’m grateful for their effort and commitment to helping stanch the Corona spread. But the masks—a constant reminder of the state of the world today–are still too recent and I do a double take every time I see someone with a helmet and face covering. Here’s a collection of images from my wanderings around Mass Ave.
