Quarantine Diary 37 | Puck in transition, a self-portrait, and two more...

Photographs made today on a normal photography assignment, which, sadly, has become abnormal in this era of COVID-19.

I photographed workers moving the statue of Puck at the Folger Shakespeare Library  (thank you Garland Scott),  plus I made a couple of extra pictures while waiting for this slow and careful process.

 Quarantine Diary 35. Photographs from Black Lives Matter Plaza, Washington DC.

This area is near the White House, by Lafayette Park. The fence surrounding the park has become a center for expressions of protest and solidarity with the rising social justice movement.

Quarantine Diary 34 | Old Town Alexandria

Quarantine Diary 34. Ruth and I spent a happy day wandering along the Potomac River waterfront and in Old Town, Alexandria VA.

As my old friend and former mayor of the city, the honorable Allison Silberberg puts it "Alexandria is a national treasure."

The only downside was a few pro-Tr*mpf people observing a boat rally on the river. They seemed both odd and dispirited. They were certainly vastly outnumbered by the happy and diverse folks strolling by.  

We had a lovely day. A blessing.
