Because of the coronavirus situation, I couldn't go to Central Park again to complete my original plan to shoot and interview dog walkers. But, I came up with a new idea: why can't we plan an event that can be recorded by Fotonow? It's like a bike team and a circus in history. After China lifted the ban, many people went to the park for a picnic and it became the most popular activity at that time. I think maybe we can also one day, when we beat the coronavirus, promote the 

scenery of Central Park (especially the green lawn) on Instagram and let people have a picnic here. In Central Park, everyone is an “artist”. At the same time, they can talk to friends they haven't seen for a long time. I hope we can not only study the history or the stories of people, but also help those living in Plymouth to record their stories. At the same time, let more people in other cities know about Plymouth's Central Park - a green and warm place.
