Keep smiling

June 2020. After four months of lock down the Eu ban draws to an end(for a time). Finally I could fly to Amsterdam. Few days after my arrival I captured this image of a lady having some fun inside a Cafe in the center city. She was proud of her mask. I found it quite grotesque indeed. At that time we did not yet know how severe was the situation and we were happy to be able to go back to the streets and still positive about a quick coming back to normal. I ask myself sometimes if she is still going around wearing the same mask...
