So it would seem. Melbourne has had yet another outbreak of Coronavirus and because it is a very virulent strain, apparently, they have put us back into lockdown.
The latest lockdown
It is pretty much what they have done before. We are to stay home as much as possible and can’t go more than 5 kilometres from our home. We can leave the house but only for a few reasons.
They say 7 days, but who knows. We all have our fingers crossed that it will only be for that long.
The masks are coming out again.
There is a lot of anger out there at the moment. Most of it seems to be aimed at our Federal Government and, I have to say, with good reason. They are the government that takes no responsibility for anything and has done little for the country during the whole pandemic.
There is a partisan war going on between the Federal level of government because our state has a leader from a different party. So instead of our Prime Minister treating all Australians equally, he treats those in states that are the same party better. Unfortunately for Victoria, we have missed out a lot. We have been made to feel as though we don’t belong to the same country.
There was an opportunity for the Federal Government to have come out of this pandemic as heroes or legends. Instead, all we are seeing is a party that takes no responsibility, passes the tough decisions to the states, being petty, and not doing anything to help anyone. They continue to make themselves out as blameless. It is really sad.
Okay my rant is over.
Getting out to take photos
It could be very disappointing knowing that I can’t go out in the near future, but I am grateful that I have been out a bit lately.
Last weekend I managed to get into the city to take some photos around South Wharf and Docklands. I even managed to take some photos of some things I haven’t taken before, but have wanted to.
I was out with a friend which was nice. We both love doing long exposures, but it really wasn’t the right conditions for it. In the end we just wandered around taking photos.
It can be so good doing that from time to time. When you aren’t tied to a tripod you can try lots of different angles and be creative with your angles. It can give you ideas for when the conditions are right.
There will be some more creative images in a video soon, but I thought today I would show a few that I have quickly processed with Lightroom.
I hope you enjoy them.
