↗ New Photos: Pandemia NYC

Pushing up some photos that I recently had developed. Nothing too special, but some scenes from walking about NYC during the pandemic in the late Fall.

Either way, I’ve decided to post these because I like how the some photos look as if they’re old NASA images from another planet. Enjoy!
