Historic Hood River
Like I always say, history starts yesterday. I took this image last week, and think it provides good documentation of our current times. You can see how Nate DeVol has adjusted practices at Dog River Coffee to pandemic times. He’s wiping down the duck decoy which lets him control access to the rest rooms so he can clean surfaces between users, as required by the health department.
Here we have the same scene in less stressful times.
Have you been taking photographs to document our present day as history? Are you interested in sharing? I’m looking for documentary images which will help people in the future (hopefully next year) remember what it was like in the summer of 2020. My shot pays homage to some of my favorite HHR images: it includes a calendar and clock along with several signs with details for context, and a well known local interior. I wish it included a nice automobile or locomotive, but you can’t have everything in one shot.
