Photos from my life during the lockdown Part 10
Since the UK is now under a travel restriction lockdown, I’m not able to take photos for my clients. So I’m documenting my time, working and living, with photos I’ve taken from inside my home and in the garden and on my once-daily exercise, walking my dogs: Photos from inside a lockdown. This is Part 10. You can see Part 1 here, Part 2 here, Part 3 here, Part 4 here, Part 5 here, Part 6 here, Part 7 here, Part 8 here, Part 9 here, Part 11 here.
The sunshine has started to return and its almost feeling like summer – its been that long since the lockdown began. With the summery weather the cactus’ inside are starting to flower, and the campion and other flowers in Frith Woods are spectacular. It’s also been perfect weather for scratching your back on the grass in the orchards. If you’re a dog.
There’s also been some marvellous shadows from plant leaves and car rims in the late afternoon, and breathtaking evening light coming through the lounge windows.
“And the sun poured in like butterscotch and stuck to all my senses” – Joni Mitchell
Photos from inside a lockdown is partly meant to bring attention to a change in how we see the familiar things around us – having to remain for such an extended time in a smaller space – and how we now have to interact with others from a distance. I hope it speaks to you viewing it and maybe inspires you to look closer at the beauty in your own home.
In the meantime, stay home, stay healthy and protect yourselves and everyone else.
