JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 06.27.20

Visual Week In Review_062720

How’s everyone doing with the new normal?

Washing hands as much as possible?

Staying close to home even if you’re area is starting to reopen?

And the biggie…wearing a mask?

This is it folks. To me, there’s not going to be some grand “Ok, we’re done with COVID”. Back to the way it was in 2019.

2020 has been a year of dizzying change on so many fronts – social, political, educational.

Seriously, who had all this on their 2020 bingo card?

This week I had two shoots – One self-generate, the other brought out by a ping from the lead singer of a band.

Both were very unique, and I’ll post about them in the coming days.

But both were done safely, within social distancing bounds.

And I got good shots, fun shots.

It can be done.

The normal is new. Embrace it.

What I Read This Week: Still working on The Rules of Magic. Started Opium & Absinthe on Kindle.

What I Watched This Week: We’ve redid a room in our first floor, changed it from being the little kiddies playroom to a new “Tween” video/TV room, with a big-screen smart TV. But Mom & Dad get to use it as well. We watched 1917 last night. It was only Ok to me. Cinematography was interesting but story overall…meh.

What I Listened To This Week: A bunch of Connor Bracken & Mother Leeds Band

What I Made This Week: One-pot smoky fish with tomatoes, olives and jasmine rice (are you cooking any more during this time of COVID? Or anything different? I’ve always cooked, but enjoy the NY Times Cooking emails I get to give me ideas.

NatGeo: Why Does Gordon Parks still resonate?

CNN: Cape Town Unfiltered (I still often think about my two weeks there in 2014)

NY Times: RIP Li Zhenshen

“That’s my technique with people. I’m sort of a fly on the wall. You try not to interfere, hang around, hope that they don’t even notice you, and if they do, they don’t care.” ~John Dominis, who would have been 99 yesterday.
