Rush Hour

I took this picture on a walk. I was zooming with friends. I took off my glasses for a second and noticed the blurry cars rushing by. I opened my camera and tried to capture what I was seeing. I slowed down the shutter speed and that’s when I got this picture. The buses in the photo were empty which would have been so weird a year ago and then it really hit me how much has changed. I realised how long it’s been since I hugged my friends. I really miss them. This is now. Now is s**t.
