Happy Mayday from the Streets of Nuremberg. A strange first day of May it was. Covid-19 lockdown, stormy weather, empty streets – far away from the usual cheerfulness at the start into what we Germans call the “Wonnemonat”. Dearly in need to see something else than our home and the supermarket, The Significant Other and I headed downtown to the Wöhrder See, where the Pegnitz River is dammed to a lake just before entering the city walls.
I did a few visual pushups with my Leica, trying to capture the mood on this stormy afternoon.
We just made it back to the car before the downpour started. Still, it felt good to go for a Mayday walk in town, even though it was a gloomy start into the month. The lockdown will continue for at least another week. But in the end all will be well!

Have a great Saturday!
