I’ll post some pictures here later. Just went to Target to a relatively quiet store. Shopping right now is a creepy experience. Struck out on TP but managed to score some flour.

NBCsports has allowed for free streaming of past golf events. It does help lighten the mood to see green grass and crowds of people.

On a walk around my neighborhood, taken from the sidewalks. You definitely have to be careful where you aim a 100-300 lens. I'm always making sure it's not pointed at someone's house. Don't want to be that guy!

Prior 5 days inside of the apartment (New York City) I've been shooting from the balcony or a window of people on the streets 22 floors below when the shadows are long or photographing the George Washington Bridge and surrounding skyline in Upper Manhattan.

Question about uploading: I'm seeing that these images look rather large in a browser even at default 100% zoom setting. Should I be resizing to something like 1600px long edge for ease of viewing? Is there a way to insert the photos into a side scrolling flip-book style instead of continuous scrolling?

Today I had errands to run and the store I needed to go to was a 25-minute walk away. I took a backpack to carry the goods in and my Oly EM1 cam and 25mm 1.8 along with it. I really enjoyed the walk even though there is a palpable tension moving around and trying to avoid people especially on commercial streets.

My wife and I did a 13.1 mile walk over the weekend as part of a local running shoe store's "Run Together Separate" event (we can still legitimately go outdoors for exercise so long as we keep our distance from other folks around here). The local trails are broad enough to keep more than 6 feet from others that you passed, and you could always go off trail a bit more if you wanted more space. There were a fair number of people out, it was a nice day, everyone was nervously friendly, staying away from each other. You can't prove it by zooming into these low resolution uploads, but that's a bald eagle perched in the first photo, and the dot in the upper left of the second photo is it flying in front of the local 14'er Longs Peak. It was nice to be outdoors.

Morning in western France. Been stunning weather recently and the kids have done their schooling outside most of the time......we're fortunate to have a large garden with plenty of things to photograph, as well.

Because of the COVID-19 virus, I am forced to stay at home. Now that the spring weather is getting better, I can use my log cabin in the garden. It has a table with a few chairs, a sofa (on which you can lie), a kitchen sink and an expresso machine plus an electric kettle. The most important is perhaps the wifi that I have connected. My work for the municipality will continue, so that is important now. In the afternoon when I drink tea I can sit outside. So I also took some pictures during my "forced" drinking tea outside. The neighbor's cat, my rooster, some flowers and sprouting tree leaves.

Still learning how much milk to pour off before freezing. Just made it with this one!

I've been browsing old photos. This one was taken 11 years ago in April. It just seemed to sum up where we're at right now.

We got the 'stand down' email today, and there's no way of working my job remotely. Looks like I'll have to investigate the contents of this bottle...

I am allotted one recycled (presumably hydrogen peroxide-treated) mask per week in my medical clinic, so I rigged up an ozone generator setup for daily decontamination. I run it outdoors to avoid breathing in the ozone, which is quite noxious.

The ozone might degrade the fidelity of the mask filter and probably damages the elastic, but on balance I think it is making me safer.

If you encase the rubber bands in plastic bags and seal with a bag-clip (those plastic clamps) over the outer end of the mask, maybe the rubber will last longer? (For when the mask is in the Qzon.)

I'm worried about contaminating the bands and then myself. Feels safer to just ozone the whole thing and dispose of it when it is starting to show signs of breakdown.

This is a cross-post, as it was taken with my latest upgrade, the PL8-18. Taken in the backyard—a Japanese maple that I planted last year.

These days, one needs to be "well-oiled" to watch the news. 🥃🍸🍷
