Coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic
Because I'm not using public transport and the need to avoid unnecessary contacts, some of my usual walking routes are not available.
For the time being, I'm following a selection of temporary routes, usually leaving home at about six o'clock in the morning so as to avoid meeting too many people. I'm still able to take photos which are being added to the photo album as usual.
