    Re: My City

    I'm getting the impression a lot of members live out with cities due to the lack of photo's. I feel a Poll coming on
    I myself live 11 miles away from Glasgow City Centre, which I don't often find the need to visit very often. Having said that many roads around the city have been closed for the last two weeks due to COP26.
    I think covid has also had a big impact in people avoiding the area although I believe things are slowly returning to normal.
    So is covid stopping anyone visiting their local cities?

    I used to work in the city, but gave that up a few years before Covid hit... during Covid, I had to take up IT work again as my weddings were all being postponed. I avoided any job in the city. Not because of Covid, but just because it is a pain the arse to get in to the city. I was over the congestion and busy-ness.

    It is certainly stopping me. Although NYC has done a great job mitigating the horrors of early 2020 when it was the epicenter of the US outbreak, there is still resistance to public health measures in a certain percentage of the population. Enough that the number of new COVID cases from 1 November to 14 November was just reported at 14,368, and with an average of 8 deaths per day.

    Granted that is a HUGE drop from the early days when 18-wheel refrigerator trucks were parked end to end down side streets to hold all the corpses that the morgues and hospitals had no more room for. But still, memories seeing that same footage weeks on end gives me pause certainly even now when considering travel plans there. I don't mind holding off a while longer - there are plenty of other things I can take pictures of in the interim.

    Lack of photos is do mainly to lack of members, 392 active members and just a small percentage of then are posting.

    It sounds very similar to what has been happening in the UK. On a typical day now we have 40,000 new cases, 1000 hospitalisations and 200 deaths. In Scotland it is still the law to wear a mask in certain places, like shopping centres but often about half the people don't bother and nobody seems to enforce the situation, yet we constantly learn how all the hospital beds are full and currently you can wait from anything between 8 to 16 hours for an ambulance (that is even for people with a heart attack or stroke!). As a result it is not just people with covid that are suffering but everyone else with ailments or worse. I get the part that we are now 2 years down the line and people are fed up with measures but the risks are still high for many people and as a result I believe everyone should be doing there bit to help. Apart from those with medical conditions is it too much to ask people to keep 2 metres apart and wear a mask in certain areas? After all 200 plus deaths a day is the equivalent to medium size aircraft crashing daily.
    Unfortunately a lot people don't realise how serious this virus is until such time they are affected or lose a love one. I for one know of several people that died due to covid that I am sure would have overwise still have been alive today.

    I need to take my wide-angle lens up to the lookout above my town and see if I can get something interesting. I can always do a panorama. I might have a night-time image from up there.
