Photo Of The Week - Through The Window

Apr 30, 2020

Helen Buck, of Mentone, gets as close as she can to her husband Alton Buck as they visit through the window of his room at the Peabody long-term care facility in North Manchester. This was four weeks ago; when she went back last week to wish him a happy 84th birthday, they could only wave to each other through the closed window.

WVPE's Photo of the Week is an image of social distancing. Thanks to Dan Buck for submitting this photo on behalf of photographer Cindy Bradley. In the picture. Helen Buck, of Mentone, gets as close as she can to her husband, Alton Buck, as they visited through the window of his room at the Peabody long-term care facility in North Manchester about a month ago. When she went back last week to wish him a happy 84th birthday, they could only wave to each other through the closed window.

It's another example of photos capturing how our world has changed as a result of COVID-19.
