Documenting My Experiences EM

I chose to submit pictures for my primary source. I thought that these pictures in Eau Claire best represented my experiences through the pandemic. You can see me wearing a mask moving into the dorms. I also think that you can tell how empty and scared people are to go outside and socialize through the pandemic (probably because it’s safest to stay inside). As you can see in the other two pictures I am outside and there are almost no cars in the parking lot and no one can be seen but me on the bridge, not even in the background. This is a primary source because these pictures document me through the pandemic. Future researchers will learn that socializing will never be the same.
