Photos from my life during the lockdown Part 12
The coronavirus/COVID-19 lockdown in the UK is slowly lifting, despite concerns from epidemiologists and other scientists and medical experts. I’m currently planning my return to some of my normal work, but in a safe manner for both me and my clients. In the meantime I’m continuing to document my time, working and living, with photos I’ve taken from inside my home and in the garden and on my daily exercise walking my dogs: Photos from inside a lockdown. This is Part 12. 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 11 here, Part 13 here, Part 14 here.
Once again this week the light was beautiful. Some stark shadows from the bright midday sun; blue sky reflecting on freshly made chocolate mousse; soft shadows on woodland flowers in Frith Wood; patchy sunlight lighting my dogs in the woods (they’re very good boys); the setting sun against ripening raspberries and illuminating ferns on the mantle; and moonlight streaming through the back door onto the stairwell.
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 restricted 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 as much as you can, stay healthy and protect yourselves and everyone else. This isn’t over.
