I never would have imagined that:

A. I’d take wedding photographs for anyone (not my cup of tea).
 
B. I’d take photographs for my daughter’s wedding in my scenic backyard during a pandemic.

C. I’d be giving away my daughter during a Zoom ceremony.

But here we are, folks, and loony logistics aside, we couldn’t be happier. Beyond getting used to the idea of marriage by Zoom, my main concern is how my fabulous future son-in-law will refer to me. The options in order of formality are: “Mr. Bennett,” “Mr. B,” “Dad,” “Pops,” or “Sir Stevie.” I think I know where this one will be going. Maybe we should crowdsource it? Any thoughts or write ins?

As I walk around North Cambridge, MA for exercise and photo opportunities, I pay close attention to the storefronts and restaurants. Some are hanging in. Others have said their goodbyes through heartfelt notes on their doors and windows. And still others are in a state of suspended animation; the lights are off, the signs from the initial lockdown of spring 2020 unchanged. (Who would have thought that it would be necessary to start qualifying the pandemic seasons with the YEAR). 

So it was quite refreshing today to see the cheery and welcoming store front of @spindlerconfections. (I especially like how thye replaced the door with a sliding takeout window.) A sweet treat, for sure.

“Memory Travel #101”

Well, I’d love to hop on a plane to Reykjavik (and lots of other places), but that’s not going to happen for a while. So I’m traveling through my archives and looking for opportunities to create new interpretations of older photos, as well as images that I never got around to processing. Here’s a surreal reimagination of ship docked in Reykjavik harbor (2018). This image speaks to me on a number of levels, but most of all, because it reminds me that in some quarters, the lights are still on. What does it say to you?

If you’ve been following my feed for a while, you probably noticed that pre-pandemic I posted abstracts, composites, and landscapes every day. Then I shifted to pandemic street photos and occasionally, for a break, botanicals. Now that I’m posting my street photos on The Pandemic Lens web site (www.pandemiclens.com), I’m planning on posting more of my creative works, macro/closeup, and traditional photography. 

I needed a break. My batteries are now fully recharged. 

I’m starting off today with an older reprocessed image, a sunset in the Mojave Preserve. I randomly chose this photo while flipping through my Lightroom catalog. It brings back memories of a wonderful trip with my daughter in 2019, when travel was normal and exploration was possible. We had a great moment watching the sky do its magic. Can’t wait to get back there again when it’s feasible to do so!

"Dark Matter, Dark Day"

I struggled to find an appropriate image for what transpired yesterday and settled on a B&W version of an older photo of mine, "Dark Matter."

January 6, 2021, a shocking low in the history of America--a stress test of democracy. 

January 6, 2021, a shocking new daily high in the pandemic--nearly 4,000 dead in the U.S. 

So much chaos and uncertainty. Dark matters, for sure.

And yet, there's that light at the end of a long tunnel of painful turbulence. I'm a realist, but still an optimist at heart.

“Waiting...”

I took this photo last night in Downtown Boston at 8:00 PM. Beyond the poignancy of the desolated street, to me the setting embodied the heavy sense of waiting that’s put us all on tenterhooks...waiting to learn the results of the Georgia senatorial runoffs...waiting for the presidential certification process and its aftermath to unfold....and waiting for an end to the acute phase of our pandemic-mediated lives. And yet, there’s hope--bright spots along the path from here to wherever we’re going.

“New Year’s Eve Aftermath: What’s the Story?”

On New Year’s Day, my wife and I took a walk along the Charles River in Cambridge, Massachusetts. As we crossed a bridge spanning the river, Ruth pointed out a muselet, the wire cage that fits around the cork of a champagne or sparkling wine bottle, sitting atop the masonry side wall. Perfect subject matter for my first photograph of 2021.

After I processed the image, I began imagining stories that might go with the photo. Maybe something like: “Aurora dropped to one knee, withdrew the ring box she’d been clutching in her pocket, popped the lid, and gazed into Hugo’s beaming moon eyes. Bubbly celebrations and more did follow.”

Have any ideas of what happened this past New Year’s Eve on a bridge spanning the Charles River, with the Boston skyline shimmering in the background? I’d love to hear them!

Happy New Year, everyone! Thanks for all the likes and comments and the opportunity to see your wonderful art! This video is based on a photo of a single arrangement of milkweed pods and seeds, animated by my motion design partner, the incredible @luissoco. I hope the symbolism of the seeds comes to fruition in a healthier, saner, and more just 2021!

I often comb through my older images on New Year’s Eve, looking for photos with special significance. This image, which I posted a year ago, seems particularly germane to the times. I think we’re at an inflection point, with an end to the acute phase of the pandemic in sight, or at least imaginable. And once the scourge of 2020 is in our rearview mirrors, we’ll have important choices to make. Will we go about our business as usual, or will we take the lessons we’ve learned and perhaps live differently? Will we simply let our awareness of the inequities that the virus laid bare slip out of consciousness and into the abyss? Or will we use those problems as a springboard for creating a more just world? I have no illusions about the challenges ahead, but as I’ve posted before, I’m an optimist at heart and hope we’ll seize the opportunities that await us on the horizon. Here’s to brighter 2021!

Saw these two dog walkers at Danehy Park in Cambridge, yesterday. There were more people--socially distanced and masked--with kids than I’ve ever seen sledding down the hill.  Quite joyous! (I have warm memories of taking by own children there years ago.) I didn’t have my pro camera gear, but my trusty iPhone 11 was in my pocket, proving the old saw that the best camera is the one you have with you.

If you've been wondering where the Pandemic Chronicles went, watch this introductory video about The Pandemic Lens. The Lens is an online literary and arts publication that includes far more than my own street photography--it's evolved into a curated website dedicated to art, photography, and other creative pursuits in the time of corona. Please follow @thepandemiclens and visit www.pandemiclens.com (see my linktr.ee) to read, listen, and watch more 160 posts. I'm gratified by the thousands of viewers who have been visiting the site. Today's video is a small sampling of the Lens. Stay tuned for new vids with examples from more Pandemic Lens contributors. Please let me know what you think of the project! Video 1 Features the following: @tanyahayesleeart @_sydney_cash_ @susansiefer_art @adrienne_sloane @roberta_gately @bennettgewirtz_art @geismarart @samkittner @jennwoodart @benjaminarizmendi @rabbikush @joannetarlin @katherinetaylorphoto @masks_of_boston @jaysamit @juneshapterart @c.j.lori @peterturnley @edsonphotoart @streetvisionla

"Microworlds 1, Reinterpreted" This video was created as a multimedia project four years before COVID-19 struck. I recently looked at it again and saw new relevance at this juncture in the pandemic, given the arrival of the vaccine and the pending new administration. We collectively sank into an unthinkable abyss, as depicted in the video. And while there's still a long journey ahead, when we emerge from the depths we'll hopefully be better able to leverage and share what we've learned to prevent or contain future crises of this pandemic's scale. I'm an optimist! The original pre-pandemic details of the video: This collaborative video takes us on a journey through the rich world of a spider’s web after a gentle rainfall. Motion designer @luissoco crafted a series of my hi-res macro shots into a virtual camera tour that simulates how the scale of the universe might be perceived by a being trapped in one tiny drop of water. The actual section of web featured in the video is only a few inches at its widest and an inch deep. But to such a tiny creature, a journey through the web might seem like an interstellar voyage.

“Another Corporate Rental!”

“Matter and Energy,” 48” X 48” inches on metallic paper, will grace the walls of a Boston financial firm for the next 6 months. The piece was produced by @iolabs. Their work is fabulous. Thanks to the wonderful @cambridgeart for this art placement! 

The image is a highly abstracted macro photograph of a spider’s web after a gentle rainfall. As the breaking, bending, and blending (to use neuroscientist @davidEagleman’s description of the creative process) evolved, two distinct zones materialized; one contains matter and the other is filled with the manifestation of energy. Hence the title. I hope this piece energizes the start of your weekend!

(”Matter and Energy” is also available in smaller sizes at BennettBotanicalImages.com in the Microworlds gallery. See my linktre.ee)

"Juried into Bromfield's "Winter Works" 2020 show!”

I'm so pleased that "Evanescent Bridge" was selected to be part of @bromfieldgallery's "Winter Works," Annual Juried Holiday Exhibition by New England Artists, December 4 - 20, 2020, Reception: Friday, Dec 4, 6-8:30, 450 Harrison Ave. Boston, MA 02118. "Evanescent Bridge" is a dye sublimation photograph printed on sheer aluminum (16" x 16"), and is based on a close up of rain drops on filaments of a web. (A 48” x 48” edition was featured in the lobby of Google’s Cambridge, MA office for a year—that, along with three other prints from my Microworlds series, was a kick to see!)

“Pandemic Chronicles: Seen on the Street, 165”

I’ve been photographing a lot of outdoor dining setups in Cambridge, but the upscale @talullacambridge’s “greenhouse” cubicles struck me as the most sophisticated, replete with elegant table settings for two and a heater (a door, not visible in this photograph, keeps the heat in and adds to the feel of a safe, private dining environment.) I hope that these kinds of measures will make it possible for small restaurants to weather the coming cold months.

I’ll be posting more photos of outdoor dining on @pandemiclens--stay tuned.

“Botanical Sunday”

If you look up the meaning and symbolism of yellow Calla lilies, you’ll variously find “joy,” “growth,” “gratitude,” and “change.” I’ll take any of those.

“Pandemic Chronicles 2020: Seen at Riverbend Park”

If you didn’t see the wheel on the ground, you’d swear this masked woman was flying, with perfect grace and balance. And so fast--a moment after I captured her in the viewfinder, she was just a tiny blur at the far end of the road. Then she turned around for another high speed run on her electric unicycle. And then another. Highlight of my photo walk!

“Swan Song”

I’ve been waiting three years to post this photo I took during a trip to NYC. So thankful I didn’t have to wait seven. 
..
Postscript: as I was writing this entry, a mild earthquake shook Massachusetts, where I live. Or maybe it was the ripple effect of so many people jumping up and down. Either way, how symbolic--a seismic shift.

“Botanical Saturday”

The name “Peace Lily” pretty much says it all, although the plant is also associated with healing and hope. We sure could use a good dose of both in these tense and divisive times.
