My name is Belinda. I am volunteering my time to photograph and document families during the pandemic. And how long have you guys lived here? Twenty-eight years. Wow. Kind of new to this but loving it so far and meeting a lot of fabulous people. I'm a dental hygienist by day. The dental field is shut down with the limitations to only emergency. It gave me purpose, spread kindness and I can do something that I love to do. Look here.Whoo! She's like, "You're crazy.You're crazy." Right there. Ready? Ready? What are you doing?
They've been just in their own little bubble. And so, to have somebody come outside and just interact with them and then bring them out. Oh, my goodness.Did you see him go like that? My day job as a hygienist requires me to read people and to kind of be flexible in going with what makes them most comfortable. Come here, sweetie pie. Oh, my God.Are you kidding me right now? Oh, my God. Everyone brings something unique with every photo, which I find really fascinating.I find people fascinating. I think the important part of this also is the documentation for their family. Children will go back."Look at my great grandma. This was during the pandemic of 2020. Look what they did." What do you want to do? Silly face. OK. Silly face.Silly face. This pandemic has kind of slowed everyone down. The light in this whole thing is the reconnecting of the basics of humanity with each other and that's what I like about it. I'm meeting all these people that would not meet otherwise and how kind everyone has been. Oh, my God.So much kindness and so many interesting people. Big, little, four legs, two legs. I find, you know, what makes people tick? You know, what brings out the good side, the bad side? I think we're all good. I think we're all good. We just have bad days and you got to forgive somebody for those bad days.
