Photos from my life during the lockdown Part 11
Since the UK is still under a travel restriction lockdown because of coronavirus/COVID-19, I’m not able to safely travel yet 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 11. 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 10 here, Part 12 here, Part 13 here, Part 14 here.
Flowers and sleepy dogs seems to have been the theme for the past week. The sun has continued to shine in a lovely blue sky, and the flowers in the garden and on the window sills have been hard at it.
Bees are visiting our bee-friendly flower patch in the garden, and the California poppies are loving the warm sunshine. I’ve also managed to build the fruit cage over my blueberries & raspberries so they’re now safe from the birds as the fruit comes to ripen. I had some help while I was on my knees screwing the wooden frame together.
And the low evening sun continues to light up parts of the house that it usually doesn’t reach.
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.
