Yes. Both taken locally, a short walk away.

 

It's amazing what you can find on a short walk if you keep your eyes open. I take a camera with me on my daily exercise strolls, which are permitted here, being sure to "social distance" of course.

Well spotted. Apparently their sales have suffered because of the name, which is strange but not unexpected I suppose. It's my least favourite Mexican beer anyway.

Not exactly an example of front-line, intrepid photojournalism. However, I thought the message on the sign was important and upbeat.

 

I'm not sure how "awesome" I feel, though. At least I haven't contracted the bug AFAIK. It seems that no forum members have either (touch wood), which is a positive thing.

Old Oklahoman folk remedy? Hope it works. If it does be sure to tell Dr. Fauci. 😃

Actually elderberries are great to build up the immune system. A superfood, you might say. They sold out at the health food store many weeks ago.

Before this virus hit, I had never heard of them, so no, not an Oklahoma folk remedy. People were ordering the products from Amazon. A hot item.

Thanks. I'll keep that in mind. I was kidding about the Oklahoman folk remedy BTW. That said, a lot of modern medicines have their roots in old remedies.

Good you qualified your remarks. I was about to ask you if sarcasm or a sneer was involved. 😉

Not at all. It appears that Native Americans knew about the benefits of elderberries.

She is still sick. She has ups and downs. A crushing headache, sore throat and fever persists. She gets dizzy when she stands, and is very weak. This is day 10. It doesn’t follow the path of typical flu because the fever with flu doesn’t persist this long.

So sorry to hear she hasn't improved. Will continue thoughts and prayers.

I've put these in the usual thread but they probably belong better here......

There are a few of these, from Champagne-cork to kettle-sized.

 

 

Something less welcome in the forest. Some people.........!

With nobody to pick the flowers for the shops these fields of daffs are in full flower with no buyers.

We are keeping back a few newspapers. But they're not as absorbent as they used to be when the ink came off on your fingers.

Cheeky wipes. More environmentally friendly anyway.

It was a bit disconcerting -- but not totally surprising --  to see usually busy shops near where I live in Vancouver boarded up to discourage looting.

Southend has largely heeded the advice on a sunny day, at least yesterday, but that doesn't seem to have been repeated elsewhere/doesn't fit the media's agenda (delete as applicable).

Ditto in Basingstoke. I walked through a park and everyone was keeping their distance, and if on a footpath, trying (and failing!) to surreptitiously move to the opposite side... I mean they moved, it was just blatantly obvious. Same in supermarkets. I assume it's not just my face 🤣

Nice little tribute this to the NHS (National Health Service).

Seen in the town where I live, whilst cycling for exercise.

I'm making photos every day to record the lockdown here in Tenerife.

Most of these are not on Alamy as I don't see them as stock, more a document of a time, and my response.

Is anyone else doing anything along these lines?

 

My photos are on a gallery in my website here

I hadn't thought about doing this. Terrific idea, though. I enjoyed your pics. It looks as if you're coping well with the situation.

Thanks John. It was one of my first thoughts as we are going through a remarkable time and I think it should be recorded.

I don't believe my photos are anything earth shattering but they are a document of how one photographer is responding.

There are a number of ways people all over the world are reacting and creating a record on many levels and this is what will

be there to be remembered, so each day I try to make a few photos that are relevant. Not as easy as it sounds but I hope I'm

doing something that will be a document of my reality as I go through this.

We are coping well, better than I expected. It's not easy having your liberty restricted, only allowed out of your home for very

precise reasons due to no fault of your own. We are lucky living where we do, with access to a terrace and balcony, good climate,

and with enough resources to get by and feed ourselves despite the major part of my work vanishing overnight and with no support

from the government.

Phil
