New York after the plague


Lyn and I spent the previous weekend in New York City, our first bit of travelling since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. It really was wonderful to be out and about. I had not realized how much we missed the place, because let’s face it, there really is no other city quite like it. In general people wore masks, and there was some sense of social distancing, but in general, it was business as usual and all of the restaurants, parks and the Metropolitan Museum were well attended.

The second set of photos of this series is here.

I hope you enjoy the images!

Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh. I would also like to invite you to visit my Book of Pain  poetry blog.





This next photo is of the handrail of the Dakota apartment building, the home of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, and where he was assassinated in 1980.

    • That is so very nice and kind of you to say so. Thank you! I have been concentrating more on poetry this last year, but with the warm weather want to do more with photography. I miss it, and it is good to be back at it! I very much look forward to seeing your site again soon, too!

  1. Good to see you safe, out and about. It’s still a bit tricky in the south, but we too are moving around again. I enjoyed these photographs immensely. You hit all my old haunts and neighborhood from Central Park to the Dakota. Appreciate you taking me for a walk around ‘home’, I doubt I will see it any time soon (too many other places calling 😂). Stay well… Ted

    • Ted, So glad that you enjoyed the photos. Thank you! I have been following all your work on Facebook and you certainly are doing well! New York was by no means back up to its anthill status of congestion, but it certainly was getting there!

      Thank you for dropping by! 🙂
