On day 5 of my Social Distancing Snapshot Diaries discarded disposable gloves were back in a big way. This is something I first mentioned on day 2 and referred to as covid litter. There did seem to be a lot more about today but that could be because I’m either noticing it more or I did get out 3 times.
In addition to two walks with Buddy, I also had to get to the local Tesco Express having overlooked a couple of items at Sainsbury’s yesterday. Again, with my discreet Ricoh GRIII at the ready, I was able to get some variety of shots to go with the Carshalton Park snaps.
Talking of variety, I’ve started to think about how long I can continue with these snapshot diaries, especially given the U.K. government have now announced continuing with lockdown restrictions for at least another 3 weeks. There’s a danger the photos can start becoming a little repetitive – if not already? Also, I don’t think I want the blog to become solely dedicated to diary updates. So I’ll be giving a bit more thought to this over the next day or two.
Anyway, here are day five’s snapshots, taken on Thursday 16 April 2020, in and around Wallington, London.
The images are best viewed as large as possible, so if you are reading on a smart phone or tablet then turning to the horizontal/landscape position should give a better viewing experience.
Enjoy the snaps, and I’d love to hear from you in the comments below, either on the photos or about your own social distancing experiences. You can view all the Social Distancing Snapshot Diaries here.
