COVID 19 Lock Down Photo trips


Well-known member
Hello all: During the lock down my wife and I , both VERY senior citizens, have been going on local motor trips where social distancing is not an issue. I am posting on MF, FUJI and Sony forums as I use a GFX 50R, and Sony A7RII. This is a 4 minute video that shows my latest stuff during the Pandemic. I hope it will lift your spirits a bit during these trying times. Please enjoy and stay safe.

P.S. I have never done this before so it is not professional or polished.

Thanks for sharing. I’ve been spending some of my time in lockdown between virtually working to learn more about video. I’ve squeezed a couple of photo trips on the last few months.


In Europe, lockdown meant strict, tough lockdown. No motor "leasure" trips allowed. Only trips to buy essentials, with limited timing to do so. So no trips to lovely spots so well captured in your delightful images and video. But no criticism implied whatsoever that you were allowed to do so. DSC08382.JPGSo it meant either no shooting, or finding inspiration in shooting the same material over and over again. I was fortunate to spend the lockdown (2 months) with a small garden and a few flowers to hand. Just a sample, because how many iris shots I have actually taken defies the boundaries of sanity...


Sadly, France is in lockdown again. So it seemed appropriate to revive this thread (if not, apologies in advance, but it did sound like a better idea then recreating a thread). So here goes, with a couple of pics. The first one -how obvious is that?- is called: lockdown. The second illustrates the minuscules pleasures of photography when one is allowed only a .6 mi radius from one's home... Both with Sony A7R IV and Laowa 100mm f:2.8 Super Macro
