There’s a spot along the James Rivera’s 42nd street in Richmond Va. with a very interesting pedestrian bridge and a spiraling walkway down to the dirt path. But i see it as an entrance back to itself. Because i took this photo right when all this pandemic hell began, and that’s how it all feels—like it has no beginning or end. We can’t really move forward with anything, and as it happens the James River park systems are now closed off to the public, giving this final Surreal image an even greater meaning.
