Photographer's Note

After a series of blue hour photos this is quite a change. It is a view from my window taken with a tele-lens. I may have mentioned that my house is located between a beautiful park and a modern sports village, which I never used by the way. Now one more possibility became available: the empty sports village hosts now a Covid-19 test centre, which I didn’t use neither.

I consciously avoid talking too much about the hot subject which is the recent pandemics because in a way I am too involved. “Those who know, they don’t speak and those who don’t know, they keep talking…” The one thing which is relevant on this forum is the question how the pandemics will affect the travel. For many people in the country, it is a matter of lost holidays on the beach. For me who lives abroad in a bad weather country, my very choice of lifestyle makes sense only if I can occasionally visit my family in my home country and go for holidays to enjoy the sun.

I don’t blame people in governments who make ridiculous decisions. They were not the smartest kids in the school. What worries me is that they got used to introducing lockdown restrictions as they see fit. As much as I always follow the rules, I find many of them quite ridiculous. To be clear, at the beginning I was very much for early and tight lockdown to limit the spread of the virus to shut it down like it was done with SARS or MERS. The government did the opposite. Now I think it is too late: there is no sense in tight restrictions anymore because the virus is already widely spread, and it will keep coming back in new variants like the flu virus does. And if so, what makes you think that the travel will ever be possible again?
