From the archives
28th June 2011
For those new to my nature blog, I’m trying to post a photo a day from my archives throughout the Coronavirus ‘lockdown’ but I did start a bit late as I’m only up to Day 23.
Our Australian Prime Minister said yesterday that this lockdown will not change for the next 4 weeks at least, but I think it will be many months before life will get back to ‘normal’ – whatever that normal might be. I suspect things won’t change that much until we find a ‘treatment’ (or vaccine).
As a ‘high risk’ person with serious heart and multiple other chronic health conditions, I can’t afford to go out in public at all – (although this does mean I’m eligible for supermarket home delivery each week 😀 ). I have got used to staying at home 97% of the time in the last 12-15 months anyway due to severe osteoarthritis in my right hip so can’t walk too much. I caught the flu in the epidemic back in 2004 and that was bad enough.
I do miss my nature photography walks I must admit. Now more than ever as the blistering heat of our Australian summer has left us and I’d love to go for a long walk outdoors in the fresh air.
There will be the occasional day when I’m too busy with household chores or other tasks online to post a photo, but I do hope you enjoy cruising through my photo archives with me. I’ve got a large photo archive to chose from, but I get so wrapped up in looking at old photos, I have trouble choosing just one image for the day surprisingly enough.
2011 was before I started getting into bird or street photography so it’ll mostly be flowers at the moment.
