Right now, it’s February and cold.
When I made these photos, it was summertime and warm, excellent jazz and dancing and weather.
Portland, Maine’s Hadacol Bouncers play New Orleans and Chicago-style jazz music of Fats Waller, James P. Johnson, Louis Armstrong and more. I photographed them in my city’s Congress Square back in July 2019 — in the before times.
Remember those times, when the sun shone and nobody wore a mask or shoved a swab up their nose?
They were great times.
