Another day of social distancing, so another day out documenting the world as it is and as I see it, all with my discreet Ricoh GRIII camera. It’s certainly interesting exploring these lockdown measures with a camera, but more importantly on how they impact on the way I now view the world.
There’s obviously a lot of concern and conversation currently on how the lockdown measures and restrictions affect people’s mental health. So I’m sure it does impact on the way I now see the world – and the way that’s reflected in the images I shoot and choose to share.
It certainly helps taking a camera with me on the daily dog walk and/or shopping trips and using it in a meaningful way. Without it I’d suspect the street photographer in me would be going stir crazy by now.
So without further ado, here are day six’s snapshots, taken on Friday 17 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.
