Stay At Home: The Prequel – Melrose, MA January, 2015

A little over five years ago, the New England region was the recipient of several rounds of big snowstorms, including a blizzard at the end of January -I believe it was the end of that month- that caused the governor of Massachusetts to order everyone outside of essential personnel off the roads and stay home (part of that sound familiar?). Well, unlike our recent situation, I actually did venture out to wander around my hometown of Melrose to take pictures. I figure the most the authorities would do is just roll their eyes at me (actually, the ones I encountered just waved).

The quiet that blanketed my hometown that snowy January day was slightly unsettling, but it certainly wasn’t in the same league as what I felt when walking through downtown Boston in late March or downtown Melrose itself a few days ago.

Finding myself in a rather down mood over the past few days, I decided to go back and do some work on older photos in the hopes of occupying myself with something other than the news. The following pics are the first results.

As always, I hope you enjoy the photos. I also hope you, your friends and family are all healthy and safely at home. Take care.
