A Death

Cherry Hill, New Jersey

Sadly, on our walk we came upon this dead deer lying on the side of the road. As a city boy, I’m not really sure what I could have done about it. Since it was pulled off the road, I assumed someone had moved it and called it in but to whom? And when? It was still there an hour late on the return from our walk.

Parking Lot

Rte 70, Cherry Hill, New Jersey

Was it Stephen Shore who first started cataloguing American suburban commercial spaces? Whoever it was, was a genius. Since then it’s become a bit of a clich√© as everyone’s piled into this space. Nevertheless, a short walk along route 70 this past weekend offered many such vistas, the empty parking lots and gray November sky capturing some of the feeling of vast emptiness this pandemic has created (to be fair, it was a Sunday).
