Frame by Frame: Community in isolation

A little over one year ago, life in Fort Collins, Colorado, came to a screeching halt due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Local hot spots like The Oval, Old Town Square, Canvas Stadium, the Intramural Fields and the Annual Flower Trial Garden seemed desolate. Before the pandemic, dozens of people enjoyed the scenery and the weather in these spaces. On campus, where normally hundreds of people passed by daily, it is surprising to see just a few. Halls that were normally busy are now empty and fields where people would play sports are almost entirely deserted. As the pandemic continues to wear on, it is easy to forget what life was like before.
