Who Could Have Imagined…

By Steve Bennett | October 24, 2020

It’s almost trite to see a slice of life in the time of Corona and ask, “Who could have imagined this…X months ago?” But it’s still the question that runs through my mind every time I frame a composition in my camera’s viewfinder. Who could have imagined that we’d schedule drive-through flu shots administered in our cars by PPE-shielded med techs…that once-utilitarian masks would become fashion statements (and a new mask-making cottage industry would emerge)…that indoor spaces would become scarier than the outdoors, so we moved our activities outside whenever possible…that waiting for a bus would require personal protective gear…that virtually no aspect of our lives would go untouched by a microbe with an exponentially larger-than-life footprint?  These are a collection of my recent images that all ask…“Who could have imagined?”

Waiting for the bus isn’t what it used to be
