We are staying home. We are good, obedient citizens. Also, as those who especially need to stay home and not catch anything out there on the street, it makes sense to us. We don’t want to be anywhere else, right now.
While taking my regular evening walk the other day – we are lucky to have a reasonably good sized yard to stretch our legs in – it struck me that the mood was so different. I take my walk every day when it is approaching six o’clock – curfew time. The sounds on our usually busy street are disappearing, one by one. Our neighbors have settled down and are tucked in their homes. Cars are parked up. Front doors close. The occasional motorbike or car might pass, but the yard rests, muted. We have had no rain for weeks, so it is dry and dusty, but the daytime wind has moved on. It’s a gentle time of day in the time of COVID. The sky begins its evening glow.
I haven’t been using my camera much lately (it’s fairly basic Canon) so I thought I would incorporate a little project, and just take a few photos each day. So, here are some of my “COVID Chronicles” so far… just everyday observations in the quiet of curfew.
