Photo Foray into Two Parks
Some days I document the pandemic in my area, Cambridge, Massachusetts, by remaining stationary on a street corner or some other vantage point and just waiting for interesting people to walk, ride, or drive by. This technique is productive when I’m on a major street that’s teeming with activity. Other days I’m on the go, on foot or on bicycle, actively looking for subjects. The on-the-go approach works well for me when I’m photographing in parks–I never know who I’ll meet around the bend, and that adds to the excitement. These images came about by walking around Danehy Park and Riverbend Park.
