funerals are 'still allowed' here as well, with no more than 30 people present!   ).


Funerals and weddings in the UK are restricted to 5 people now....

Every country seems to be different . In Belgium it's max 8 people at funerals and weddings and baptisms are forbidden. All churches are in lockdown (also for sunday mass).

I am staying almost permanently at home. Every now and than a walk with the dog and that is it. Out of total boredom I started painting aquarelle again, for a good cause though. Nursing homes cannot be visited by family any more. All the old people there are alone with the nursingstaff.
To brighten up their day I (and a lot of others) made postcards. This is my finished bunch. Working on more but my passepartou cards are finished.

The company I work for made the change to 100% home office on Wednesday last week, so together with the Ausgangsbeschränkungen around here - i.e. you can leave your home only for essential tasks like grocery shopping, going to work and - gloriously - going for a walk - I've pretty much only been around the apartment and garden. I've tried to make a project out of it - I've committed to using only one lens per day, and I've tried to shoot the same view once every day in early evening. All Sony a7ii. Here's what I got so far.



Konica Hexanon AR 35mm F2.8



Konica Hexanon AR 40mm F1.8



Minolta MC W. Rokkor - HH 1.8 f=35mm



SMC Pentax-M 1:2 50mm



Minolta MC Rokkor - PF 1:1.7 f=50mm

most churches seem to be closed? believe most services were cancelled here, but not all?
up to 30 people are still welcome in church.
and just heard: https://nypost.com/2020/03/23/expectant-dads-outraged-over-hospital-delivery-room-ban/
in Holland, if daddy has a cold, he will be banned from the delivery room. social distancing will be the rule anyway.

lovely idea, Jet! touching, and they are wonderful! shame you ran out of passe-partouts, but IMHO they looked great without them as well!

very nice, Cucoo! (do you have a name?).

and, of course, my heart goes out to you, Fred
hope she'll be safe.

According to the Dutch Government religious and levensbeschuwelijke(*) meetings are allowed only if less then 30 people attend and it is possible to keep a 1.5m distance. On march 12th the local Mosque proudly said they would stay open, but that was before the rules limiting relligious meetings to 30 people.

In Greece it is easy, no religious meetings are allowed at all. Not everyone got the message and the priest was duly arrested. He claimed he did not receive the the message by the Archbishop based on the government decision to close all churches a week before - he, however, knew the mayor was looking for him within matter of hours. One just wonders...

Stay home and stay safe!

(*) Levensbeschouwelijk is one of those Dutch words that is hard to translate into English - like "gezellig" or "apartheid". It means something like "philosophy of live" or "ideology" but not quite.

5 is also the legal minimum for a wedding (bride, groom, celebrant and 2 witnesses).

Two of my sisters-in-law died recently - we had the service for one days before the lockdown, 200+ packed into a small church - a real occasion, so glad it happened in time. The other service in the same small church has been postponed until her American husband and friends can travel - very sad.

Just a little impression of a day at the (almost empty) office.
Over 90% of office staff is working from home at the moment which makes social distance easy to keep.
Mills are still running, although at a lower pace.

#1 Empty corridor...


#2 Empty stair case...


#3 Empty offices ....



#4 At the entrance of the canteen (no need to translate I guess )



#5 A warm welcome



#6 But nobody to read the further instructions...



#7 Pick your space at the otherwise full main office parking....



#8 Driving home on the motorway in rush hour...
