It is a Tuesday afternoon in April and school is in session. A national holiday is not being observed today, but the images of iconic Lubbock locations, on a typically normal day, during a worldwide pandemic give me a chill. 

Photos from local photographer Jody B. Smyers of Jody Smyers Photography show Lubbock ISD Schools, South Plains Mall and Texas Tech's campus entrance near Broadway Ave. while the city is under stay-at-home orders.

Signs of restrictions easing may quickly refill the empty parking lots, and hopefully, we will never have to see images such as these ever again.
