With the current essential restrictions on movement impacting on our lives, everything seems to have ground to a sudden halt. Well, almost everything. It’s a sobering thought and a reminder of our position on this planet that nature continues on with blithe indifference to the woes of man. Beauty is all around us and whereas under more normal circumstances this beauty might not necessarily come to our notice as we go about our busy lives, the vimtovirus pandemic has made us all suddenly conscious of our surroundings by bringing everything to a skidding halt, allowing more time to look around and appreciate Mother Nature in all her glory.
With that in mind, here’s what I saw on my last visit to the centrum the other week, cycling along the Blue Path Of Beauty (a.k.a the kordon cycle track) to the bank to withdraw funds for emergency chocolate, biscuits and gin to help us weather these troubled times. Every photo below was taken on that one journey – all I had to do was keep my eyes open and my camera handy.
