The restrictions will be lifted on the 19th July but we are not coming to the end of the pandemic. We are entering a new age of living with the virus. The discussion about mask wearing continues, the sun is shining and society needs to open up. Is this a good time? Vaccinations are high and therefore the government is confident (if this is the right word) that the restrictions can be lifted. For my photography journey. I wanted to catch life during the final days of the restrictions. I was in Solihull to collect my glasses in Touchwood. I was armed only with my iPhone. The following black and white pictures give a brief insight into the mask wearing and restrictions that will soon be a thing of the past. Let’s just hope so!
The Corona Virus has rapidly engulfed us. Pubs, bars, restaurants and Gyms were closed on Friday (20th March) with full lockdown announced by the Prime Minister on Sunday (22nd March). We can go out for one form of exercise, food shopping and essential medication. I have got into a routine of going for a walk just before the sun rises and I have put down a selection of pictures from Knowle village and the places I walk around in the morning. These are very strange days as you will see.
Restaurants, Bars and Shops are closed except for the convenience store
If you go shopping then you must keep your distance and this is done by yellow crosses on the floor.
STAY AT HOME
By far the most sensible and safest activity that you should practice is Stay at home. Here Sandy shows how it is done.
