Them: [gesturing widely and speaking loudly through respirators] "We're here on our honeymoon, can you take our picture?"
Me: [Nods and gives thumbs up sign]
It was on the front page of the Guardian at some point.
I should be clear about two things:
1. The photo is real but not mine, and I was unable to track down the photographer.
2. The real context is unknown to me. What I wrote was from my wildfire worried, fevered imagination.
@cstanhope Ah ha.
@cstanhope Dang, people still go to California for their honeymoon? Eh, whatever floats their boat.🤷♂️
I also find it interesting how they're prepared for two things: the wildfires and the pandemic.
@cstanhope What a photo. You should submit this to Reuter’s. Crazy days get even crazier.
@sbeebe Sorry, I didn't mean to take credit, I put the source in a reply. I tried to find the actual photographer, but was unsuccessful. I'm not very good at these poop-posts.
@cstanhope No worries.
@cstanhope anyone remember when fallout pictures seemed to be caricatures?
@panina Yeah, exactly.
@cstanhope first ever use of "dystopic, bucolic scene"?
@joeyh lol. Maybe. It seemed appropriate. Hopefully not a phrase we need too much of in the future.
