More: In addition to providing a daily view capturing the people, pets, interiors, urban landscapes and entertainment, social and news events of Las Vegas and the Valley, we also see The Daily Frame as a postcard to the future for scholars and visitors in the years ahead. With the launch of “Life in the Time of Covid-19” series we document these uncertain times as people, businesses, institutions and government navigate uncharted waters.
We welcome your photographic views and thoughts and encourage you as always to contribute to this project.
In these strangest of days of that include the devastating Covid-19 pandemic – linked collapse of the local economy and the tragic murder of George Floyd and many others, we wish all health and well-being to those sheltered at home. And we extend our heartfelt thanks and gratitude to the Valley’s doctors, nurses and medical staff, and to all essential workers.
Take care. Be safe. Be present. Get vaccinated. And don’t forget to wear a mask and social distance. We can all help save lives.
