Store Front Photos: Mannequins, Stars and all that’s left of the General Hospital

by Darren Clarke, April 21, 2020

“Why are there so many people out here? Wait, I’m out here…”

These are the times we live in. Should I have been out of the house taking pictures given the government Covid-19 directions to stay at home unless completely necessary? Probably not. Was I going to lose my mind if I had to stay home on the couch watching Netflix for another full day? Absolutely. In fairness these were shorter excursions than usual for me because while places like downtown Fort Erie and Niagara Falls were incredibly quiet, downtown St. Catharines and Niagara-on-the-Lake were surprisingly busy.

The theme I stumbled upon for this particular picture blog was reflections in store front windows. Which oddly enough, gave me more religious themed pictures than I would have anticipated.

I would like to especially thank the post man on Queenston Street who was incredibly tolerant of the fact that my winding path kept drawing us together to try to deke around each other while providing a social distancing friendly berth.
