COVID-19 shutdown in Montana

Watching my little town come to somewhat of a screeching halt as businesses close their doors and people hunker down has been a quiet time in Livingston. The threat of illness brought by this virus has created a new reality, albeit temporary. For me, I’ve take the opportunity to get outside more and go for long walks on the weekends. During the week I walk to my studio by myself in the big empty Shane Lalani Center for the Arts.

Today I took a roundabout route to walk to work and carried my camera to see what I might see. The mountains were obscured and a haze was over the mighty Yellowstone River which added it’s mystery to the crystalline environment.

On my route, I met other’s that were out walking and joyously greeting others that were sharing the same experience. It is obvious that folks are hungry for the social interaction of our little rural community.

So I hope you enjoy the view of our small town Montana, USA during the last weeks of winter. Be safe, be kind and stay healthy!

I found that this sign had acquired a different meaning than was originally intended.
As perhaps this mural as well… to some.
And finally my destination at this beautiful old school building that has seen a lot!

And then sighting my first Robin this year. There is hope!

Soon this will pass and a vibrant life will once again return to all of our towns and cities. I have had a few calls from couples that have had to cancel their wedding plans for the early spring weddings. Some of whom having successfully rescheduling with venues and service providers and some not. If this has happened to you and are looking for help with photography or connecting to other services for your wedding, I’m happy to help. Give me a call or hit the Contact Larry button!
