Social Distancing, Garage Style.
Our garage has taken on a new role during this winter of our discontent. We still use it for storing our car. But with the pandemic forcing us to maintain social distance in an area with fresh air circulation, the garage—protected from the wind and the elements—is as good a place as any to visit. Of course, the ambiance is seriously lacking, but aesthetics and comfort don’t really matter when you just need to feel the presence of dear friends and family. After I took this shot of my wife, Leana, it hit me that maybe Whistler’s Mother was social distancing, too?
