It's Even Lonelier Outside

It's Even Lonelier Outside

We're living in a scary and strange time in history. Thanks to the coronavirus, which is currently spreading through the population like wildfire, most of the world has gone into lockdown. Anyone who doesn't have an essential job has been asked to stay at home to avoid spreading the virus even further.

Here in Scotland, and the rest of the UK, the government has stated that people are allowed to go outside to get some exercise. As long as we obey the social distancing rules. I decided to go out for a walk with my camera and see what I could capture. 

I must say, a part of me kind of wished I had just stayed home. Every store I walked past had similar messages posted in their windows like the ones below.

Seeing all the stores closed at ten o'clock on a Thursday morning was one thing, but seeing virtually no one around me was also very unsettling.

Occasionally, I would spot someone out walking their dog or just out for their daily walk, but for the most part, I felt like a character in a movie who has just awoken to an apocalyptic world.

Even the pigeons looked lost and unsure what to make of it all. But it didn't take them long to spot me and form a gang. It was at this point I decided it was time to end my walk and go home before I got pecked to death.

This could have ended badly for me.

Before I wrap up my very first blog post, I will leave you with one last photo, that on any single day of the week, would have been close to impossible to get without having to edit traffic out of it.

The oldest house in Glasgow. Built way back in the 1600s.
Take care, be safe and come back for more of my posts if you enjoyed this one.
