A senior resident peers into the closed library in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York.

In an attempt to stay sane during these strange and trying times we’re living in, I’ve decided to create a photo diary that I hope to update on a daily basis. Today I went out for a long walk in the neighboring town of Hastings-on-Hudson, NY. There I came across this scene of the senior man peering into the closed library, which gave me a sense of the¬†isolation we’re all experiencing now. The accompanying photo of the book was taken at a small park next to the library. The book had already been placed there and the wind had blown it open, tearing some of the pages and scattering them on the grass below. As I approached it, a gust of wind flipped it to the title page. It felt as if the photography gods had set it up for my picture.
