Lockdown Library


During the Lockdown period of the Covid-19 pandemic, March - July 2020, I had the opportunity to explore Bristol city centre where I live.


The pictures here are not an attempt to document the Lockdown, simply an invitation to wander with me through the deserted streets, empty parks and peaceful harbourside.  All these places are within walking distance of my home. They are scenes I encountered during early morning walks in the heart of Bristol, or in our small garden.

I found so much beauty, previously unnoticed. I had not been taking time to look up or to “stand and stare”.
