Local 600 Unit Still Photographer Nicola Goode, SMPSP, who lives with her 16-year-old son, Dylan, in a hilltop house near the Santa Monica Airport, and maintains a storefront studio near Venice Beach, says the early days of the lockdown, in mid-March, were unsettling – in an area usually buzzing with noise and activity, the silence was deafening.

“Who could have imagined this is how a global pandemic would look?” Goode wonders. “I had never experienced my neighborhood so strangely peaceful. During those first weeks of quarantine, the sky was empty of airplanes yet full of rainbows and spectacular clouds. It felt like a private performance, accompanied by the flocks of green parrots careening over the rooftops.”

We asked Goode to provide some thoughts about the images – past and present – that have accompanied her journey through these strange and unsettling times.

Here’s what she said:
