These sum up June I guess... 

 

The mural at Mauerpark (Berlin wall site):

Racism is a pandemic too:

rassismus-ist-auch-eine-pandemie-schild-

 

It doesn't get more 2020 than this (I already made it into a sticker 😅) :

protest-sign-reads-intersection-racism-i

 

And here I laughed so much and made the guy hold his sign straight for me so we can read it in its full glory:

sign-reading-how-do-you-open-your-mouth-

 

True dat.

Used in today's local rag, but no use through Alamy yet.  Worth the trek up those stairs! Bantry House and Gardens

Used in two local papers, but no Alamy use yet - Schull Harbour

I like the sky in this one - Schull Harbour

Love that area of Ireland! Visited the Bantry House about 30 years ago when I was a groomsman at a close friend's wedding, his bride was from Schull.  Have not been back but would love to some day.  My friend's mother-in-law stills lives there and they spend their summers in Schull every year (they live in Upstate New York now).  Nice place to live, I would think!

It's a fabulous place to live and surprisingly full of picture opportunities.  Get yourself over and we'll have a meet up!

not sure if that's supposed to be a mask on face.

Had not been in downtown DC in over three months, but the other day, I had magazine shoot not too far from the city center and so I had to go see the new "Black Lives Matter Plaza" just a block from the White House.  Compared to the volatile protests recently, it was very peaceful and calm...also super quiet in terms of many of the office buildings were pretty much empty with people working from home still.  Never seen DC like this on a non holiday or non weekend day. This man was having his picture taken by a friend and I asked if I could get a shot too.  He was fine with me taking the photo and asked if I could send it to him.....it turns out that this guy is a very successful rapper and goes by the name, "Grafh".  We've exchanged a bunch of emails and texts since Tuesday.  You just never know who the person you walk past is.

You can see the White House down at the end of the plaza

A little late posting these, but I got oodles of Black Lives Matters art photos on the streets of Oakland. The whole city was boarded up and it instantly became an open art museum of high quality street art.

 

This one is very prominently placed in the searches and getting zooms.
