Yes, that photo held my attention for a long time. I grew up somewhere there.. sort of.
Cool thread, here is one of two photos I’ve taken in lockdown, portrait of my dog, little boo.
In lockdown too. So weird.

Lockdown. Oh man, what a drag.
But I’m lucky, I got 5 acres of goodness to play with. I can’t imagine what it like being cooped up in the city.
I've barely lifted my camera, nor have I processed the hundreds of images that I took in Europe in early March, right before France closed down. It's a very strange adjustment. Since this is going to last into June in Virginia (if not longer), I'd better get myself together or I'm going to miss all the cool spring photo ops.
On the plus side, I've been meeting a friend for walks (keeping our physical distance from each other and anyone else on the trail), and I've gotten my bicycle serviced and hope to start riding. So, I should come out of this in better physical shape than I went in.
We're allowed out for exercise as long as we practice social distancing. Hours before all non-essential stores were closed, I picked up a used Oly 135 f/3.5 OM so I could take portraits on my daily walks without getting anywhere near anyone. The forsythia bush across the street is blooming so I made my son stand at the end of the driveway. He wasn't thrilled but I did get the brilliant yellow background I wanted!
