COVID-19 Self-Quarantine Photos, Week 1

My family and I have been staying home/away from others except for the rare grocery trip, to keep ourselves from being exposed to the COVID-19 virus and help flatten the curve.

I’ve been doing a bunch of things to pass time.

I made a t-shirt design. It’s also available as a tote bag, mug, a sticker, and a bunch of other products on RedBubble.

Also to pass time, and in the hopes of helping people in a similar situation, I put together a pamphlet about how to deal with cabin fever based on what I learned when I was bedridden. You can download it (for free!) here.


I’ve had to cancel all my upcoming photography gigs and am relying on my parents for support right now. I’m trying to keep taking pictures anyway. I know from experience that spending long periods of time in one place can get tedious, and I also know that trying to think of how I would present my surroundings to others through photography will make it less tedious. So, here’s what I’ve been looking at lately. I’d love to see what you’re looking at where you are, if you want to share!
