Locked Down Looking Up
started as a series of images made over time from a fixed point—outside my front door—during the San Francisco Bay Area’s lockdown to slow the spread of Covid-19. Multiple shots were combined to show the flight trails of birds, insects, and bats. While most everything in my life has come to a standstill, up in the air, there was still a lot going on. Later, when I started to be able to move around a little more, I began to explore other locations. (Click any image for a closer look.)
