The Spring Break that never ended

Very early in lockdown, I documented a ghost town 6th Street on what should have been the big Friday of SXSW.  3 days later, the University of Texas at Austin was supposed to come back from Spring Break.  As in many places, that got extended by a week, and then like everywhere else, no one returned for the rest of the semester and everything went virtual.

These photos are from what should have been the first day back from Spring Break.  The Drag and the campus should have been full of students.  From the afternoon until the evening, it was eerily empty while walking around and taking these pictures.
