Walking Princeton

A few weeks after New Jersey’s Governor, Phil Murphy issued executive orders which effectively shut down non-essential businesses I ventured into downtown Princeton for a solitary photowalk with my Fuji X-T2 camera and XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR lens. I walked for over an hour, photographing everything and anything that caught my eye. I know I pushed the shutter button way too many times, but when I download the images to my iMac, there were several noticeable themes. I had photographed mostly doors and storefronts.

It was early spring, and many of the trees in Princeton were filled with blossoms. Normally the downtown would be filled with the hustle and bustle of people eating or shopping in the downtown stores and restaurants. However, the pandemic lockdown had forced most people to stay home. The streets and sidewalks were empty. That provided an opportunity to photograph storefronts without parked cars blocking the view.
