“This is the first time I saw someone wearing a face mask in our city of Saratoga Springs — a clear visual sign that we are living in strange days. Joseph Bruno Pavilion in Saratoga State Park.”
I arrived at the Post Office on Broadway in Saratoga Springs disappointed that I was the only one on line since a had a shot like this in mind. But after I mailed my packages of Barkeater peanut cups to my parents, I was pleasantly surprised to see many people behind me on line. Then I kicked myself because I didn’t bring my 20mm lens as I barely fit in all with my 24mm.”

“My friend, a doctor/hospitalist, holding a box of n95 face masks I donated to him.”
“After more than a week of mostly hunkering down at home, my wife and I were desperate for socializing with our friends even though we were hesitant to meet our friends outside. Here are us 3 practicing social distancing on our friends’ back yard, Saratoga Springs, NY”
