Quarantined City: Seattle Under Siege by the Coronavirus (Part II)

This is Part II of my photo essay that features different neighborhoods and landmarks of Seattle, notably areas that are typically very busy and filled with the hustle and bustle of people and vehicles before the populace was fully informed of the disease’s incredibly rapid and lethal contagiousness from person to person. If you’re a native of Seattle, you may readily recognize these areas and appreciate the impact that the citywide quarantine has made.

During the first weekend of Spring (March 21st and 22nd), I took a few hours to venture out into the city on my bicycle to explore the Emerald City and document my observations with my camera (an activity I engage in frequently). A few other photos were captured during an evening drive through West Seattle. Given the unprecedented situation that several cities and nations around the world are experiencing simultaneously, I felt it would be important to capture Seattle in its quarantined state.

TIA hopes all of you are healthy, safe, and well during this extremely difficult and surreal time in our collective history as human beings. Please continue to abide by the guidance of public health officials in your respective locations around the world.

  1. Beautiful photos! The lack of people on the bright, sunny days take me back to a Sundays back in the 80’s when most stores were closed. Tranquil. Stay safe, my friend.

    1. Thanks, Kirk. The lack of people is truly what makes these images unique. A city without the presence of its people is not really a city anymore, philosophically speaking. I’m glad I am able to document this event despite the grave circumstances. Please be well and take care.
