Downtown

The last time I was downtown was March 14th. It was supposed to be our annual St. Patrick's Day celebration, but because of lousy weather and Mr. Corona or is it Ms.? showing its hard face many functions such as the main function, The Parade, was cancelled. But I did go downtown, because after all it is a tradition I like to keep, bad weather and all.

The following Monday, the LAW came down! Everything, except essentials, was closed, and we all went into quarantine.

Now, a few weeks over a month, I decided to go downtown and look around and take photos as I walked.

I walked around downtown for a few hours, clicking here and clicking there. The only photo I took that did not make sense to me is the above photo......how does one walk out of one's slippers???

Document photos so our great grand kids can appreciate the times and be prepared in the future. Good job and hope current folks get the message they send.

This is a remarkable and emotional series and certainly a telling record of life during a pandemic! Well done!

It is hard to see the streets almost empty and things as they were left, as if time had stopped. Greetings and take care.

Almost like a science fiction movie.

You've captured the eeriness of the times, Camellia. It's kinda like what you'd see in the movies for the aftermath of nuclear fallout.
