COVID Took Over My Life

Description (Dublin Core)

This photo screenshot is from a clip of the LAs Vegas Strip taken on March 30th of 2020, by Michael Quine.
When this photo was first released on social media, I could feel my heart sink. This is the photo that made me realize how serious COVID was getting. My city. The city that never sleeps. Being silent. Out of the seven years that I’ve lived in Las Vegas, this was the first time where I had seen a street completely empty. When I look at this photo today, it reminds me of the day all of our lives changed, but I also think of how this is now considered the norm. Everyone wears masks and hand sanitizers every way you look.
