Covid and Amsterdam Photos
For 33 years, Pat Seman has lived in a street that ends at the Amstel River. Every morning she walks along the river and sometimes takes photos with her Samsung smartphone, an SM-G930F. Since Covid, the river path has become much busier with people of all ages exercising, walking, and jogging. As a result, the grass verges have been worn away, as well as the usual spring flowers. River cafes have also been closed; their terraces empty. Seman took the photos of the social distancing poster and electronic message board in March 2020. Her photo of the ice-covered Amstel is from February 2021, contrasted with one a month later, at the beginning of spring.
