Photographer Tausha Dickinson knew she had the ability to bring cheer and community to her neighborhood Tywater Crossing, in Franklin, Tennessee, amidst the COVID-19 lockdown that we are all in. Here was her update on Facebook:


“First of all, let me say that I do take the COVID-19 very seriously and I have been self-quarantined to my house for a week, but I needed a creative outlet, so I posted in my neighborhood group today and gave my neighbors a 5-hour notice that I was going to walk around and wanted to photograph their families (from a VERY safe distance of course!)

I let everyone do their own thing and I absolutely loved capturing these and we all had a good laugh ….”

All the following photos are published with Tausha Dickinson’s permission and they are called “Weird Times Bright Spirits.

Enjoy the below outtakes and we hope it inspires creativity and brings joy.

I mean, don’t you know this man is hysterical? (and likely really cold right here!)
