During the early months of the pandemic, I spent considerable amounts of time on my front balcony watching the street below. I began taking pictures of people as they passed below me, combining them to create a Where's Waldo?-esque street scene. For me, the activity was akin to doing a 1000-piece puzzle. It was mindless, at times obsessive, and offered some needed respite from the anxieties of adjusting to life in the pandemic.
