Right now, we fear the things we cannot see; be it the virus, the future or a smile. Therefore, I am choosing to believe. To believe that we are taking care of each other. And to believe that a smile can still exist behind a mask, even when we can't see it. 

With my 200mm lens, I was able to photograph friends and family from 6+ feet away, from the comfort of their own front lawns, serving as a reminder to trust the eyes: a window in.

Additionally, I asked each individual: "What makes you smile on a bad day in quarantine?" Hover (for desktop), or click (for mobile) on the photos below...

normalcy, normal do.

Thank you all for giving me more reasons to smile.

my poem about coming home 4/24/2020

"The sounds around I know I knew;

A pop, a knock, a pour, a chew. 

I close my eyes and still can tell;

The tick, the tock, the horn, the bell. 

I hear my dear old father play, 

Or the collie bark the night away.

The radio humming a busy tune,

The tv competing till very soon...

My mother insists a peaceful rest,

The woods around us don’t protest. 

The sounds I know I knew too well,

A house is more than just its shell. 

They suddenly come back to me

Of life, of home, familiarity."
