J-110 Photo Essay: Life During Covid-19

During the Covid pandemic, my life has very much been the same. Same view, same routine, the same. Lately, with the advent of the vaccine, it has started to perk up. While I still see many of the same views that I have come to see most days in the past year, I did get to attend my son’s graduation in person and complete a long awaited tattoo that I have had my eye on for the past two years. All things that contributed to this photo essay. I guess I got lucky this week.
