“Isolation is not good for me” – remember the line from the 1995 song “Lemon Tree” by the band “Fool’s Garden”? Well, despite the loosening up of the Covid-19 restrictions everywhere, we are still far from life as we knew it from before Corona.
I haven’t been in downtown Nuremberg for almost three months now. Despite being only twenty minutes away. All we really need we can get out here in the suburbs. The shops in town are all open, but it seems people are still hesitant venturing into the city. Not that it is fun going shopping with the mask on.
So the two images in this post, which I took during instawalks last year at the Nuremberg Convention Center and in the subway downtown, are still kind of symbolic of the situation these days. Isolation. Also photographically.
Photographic activities in a group, like photo walks with the Nuremberg Instagramers, are still prohibited. But at least the borders will be opening up on the weekend. And while Big Boy will hold the fort at home, The Significant Other and I will head to the mountains for ten days, staying in a friends house over in Austria. After more than three quite intense months working form home, we are so much looking forward to finally get out into nature and see something else. For me, to finally have the opportunity to get a camera back into my hand.
And hopefully, by the time we come back, things will have even more normalized and it will be fun again to walk the Streets of Nuremberg.
Have a great Thursday
