I think that this little run of pandemic-related photographs might be coming to an end shortly. I have a few more yet to post but, as it feels that the country is pretty much out of lockdown now following the latest set of relaxation measures on the existing rules, I’m not sure that I will take many more. Hopefully my fears that this easing of the lockdown are misjudged and that I’m not going to be back posting a whole new set of pictures from lockdown phase 2 in a couple of months time. Having seen pictures of huge crowds of people flocking to the usual beaches and beauty spots to enjoy the good weather in the news today though, I won’t hold my breath.
A couple of photgraphs from the local kid’s park posted here today. I’ve shown some from here previously, but these tie quite nicely into the news that competitive sport is being allowed in the UK from 1 June. This will have to take place behind “closed doors” which means no crowds of spectators will be present at the events for obvious reasons.
Similarly, people will be able to exercise together in groups of up to six people while observing social distancing measures, meaning that some other recreational team-based sports may now be possible.

I’m with you about wondering about round two of lockdowns. When I look at the charts of new cases around the world, it doesn’t strike me that we’ve eliminated the treat of the virus in a way meaningful enough to start getting back to “normal.” Here’s hoping that I’m wrong. For the time being, I’m going to still be avoiding crowded situations, though.

Yep. It feels like expert scientific advice is something to be ignored whenever it goes against the desired political or popular course of action.
