I remember getting out of work on time (a rarity!) and running home to get changed and pick up my old camera before heading to Westminster with a friend. Even though I am not a Brexiteer, I wanted to capture this historical moment. Back then I was as sure as hell this would have been the event of the year. Or – at least – this would have been my most iconic picture of the year. Nobody would have imagined that Covid-19 would have upset our lives.
Here we go again. The UK Government enforced a new lockdown with the new restrictive measures coming into force hours after reaffirming there would have been a leeway around Christmas day. However, in a rather unspectacular fashion, Boris Johnson had yet another change of heart. Honestly, I cannot recall how many U-turns the Conservative-led government has made on Covid and Brexit. In any case, it is what it is. And when you can’t do what you do, then you do what you can. In my case, all I can do is walking around with my Fujifilm X-T3. Enjoy. More to follow in the coming days….
By the way, yesterday I bought a street photography book by UK photographer Brian Lloyd Duckett featuring 52 assignments. The first picture below ticks off assignment No. 49 “Mirror Mirror Technique”.
