Cork in Covid-19 Lockdown

Cork in Covid-19 Lockdown
Masks down to eat ice cream.

I barely used my camera in April. I took one photo with it and it was a test shot of my office window. My first time taking the camera out was May 9th when we had to go into town to do some shopping.

Social distancing while waiting in line for coffee.

Not many people were wearing masks then, but social distancing was happening. The city was still mostly shut down and there weren’t that many people about.

Advertising for a movie that came out 2 months before.

It was a sign of the times that an advertisement for a movie released in mid-March was still showing on a bus at the start of May. The country had ground to a halt.

You can’t sit here. Public transport was pretty empty during lockdown.

Masks become mandatory today in shops and public transport. The next phase of unlocking the economy has been put on hold. Pubs were supposed to open on August 10th but that won’t be happening.

Social Distancing with a Locker

This is one way to social distance

Porto, Portugal, November 2019. Long before SARS-CoV-2 hit Europe. Street photography feels like a forbidden art now that we are all at home and we’re not allowed on the streets in any numbers.

* You obviously should not walk around with a locker like this. STAY AT HOME!

The MacCurtain St Construction Site

MacCurtain St Construction Site

If you’ve driven along MacCurtain Street lately you’ll have noticed a few lanes are blocked and York Hill is completely closed. A 73-bed “micro-sleeper hotel” is going in there which I presume means rooms will be a little bigger than the capsule hotels in Japan..
