TO WALK and CHEW GUM IN THE CITY OF SIN

by Royal Hopper

There is a unique kind of resilience to this city _ the City of Sin. It is a kind of attitude that is both a brilliant apathy a hyper sensitivity to the world around it.

We know there is a pandemic for instance and taking precautions like wearing a mask will bring the tourists back eventually so we do it _ not because we are afraid but because our Sin City pragmatism says it is necessary. Be sure of one thing though we will continue to be who we are mask/social distancing and all because the people of this strangely dysfunctional city understands what it means to walk and chew gum at the same time.

I like to take photos. I dont pretend to be an artist but I have had a few published. This week end I picked up my Rebel T6 and started taking photos. In an attempt to walk and chew gun at the same time I stayed in the car and took photos at the intersections.

The city looked much as it always did. Some people looked lonely …some people looked lost…some seemed filled with purpose and others just taking up space. The times had changed but the City of Sin hadnt not really and the Sinners who live there still dealt with it in much the same way. If you miss the City we are still here and mask or no mask is still the City of Sin.

Take Care Sinners
