Photographing the Essential Workers of Main Street, USA » mainstreet_02
Over the years, my favorite downtown coffee shop has been Planet Perk. A lot of memories taking my mom there, having gatherings with local photographers, as well as my own sanctuary for good coffee, a quiet atmosphere and the internet. While understanding the need to social distance and quarantine, I still worry about my friends that run local restaurants in these trying times. Business does go on for a lot of restaurants by switching to carry-out or delivery services. So, I photographed Planet Perk owner Kenneth Osmond at the front door of his empty restaurant waiting for a customer for take-out food. Sigma fp camera with Sigma 14-24 DGDN f2.8 Art lens. ISO 800; f4 at 1/160 second.
