Thank you, Pieter! You're too kind, and indeed that's my trusty 28/2.8 that's been practically glued to the a7 since I bought it from you. I've barely even started exploring my other Rokkor lenses. Probably the 58/1.2 is what I've used the most. Speaking of which, and really another confinement image, or empty city anyway, is a photo of me that Louise took with my a7 and 58/1.2. She'd originally wanted a picture of me back up against the one of the doors at that distant building but they didn't turn out the way she wanted so she snapped this one of me as I walked back to her. I think it's a cool shot.

Me, by Louise

a7 and 58/1.2

Also, I've really been enjoying your documenting confinement in Belgium, seeing how different confinement looks in a less densely populated area, and yet, some of the sentiments are so similar. Like the hanging out of white sheets. In Paris, we clap every evening at our windows, at 8pm, to applaud healthcare workers. Different manifestation, but the thought is the same.

^^ well seen by Louise, the other person dashing in the background adds a lot to the deserted mood


A few more from my bear hunt

Hi there

I will have to find some photos of this subject on one of my rare trips out. Oddly enough, with the exception of planning food shopping trips carefully and avoiding restaurants, my life has changed very little. I work from home in a very rural area and endless photo opportunities without seeing another person. First official case of the virus reported here on Saturday, though I assume it's been here awhile. We still cannot get much testing here. I drove my mother to her heart dr appointment in Little Rock 14 days ago. They were screening everyone who came through the doors, but we are happy to be through the 14 days today, with no effects. Many 'routine' medical appointments are being rescheduled now. I had an appointment with my eye dr today and that has been moved to June 1. I've seen the bear hunt on tv, but not a chance to see it in person yet. I will be looking.

Food and liquor stores are still open here in Belgium (selling essentials). Saw this sign at the liquor store today:

Very interesting thread! I haven´t heard before of the hype to put stuffed animals on the fences, it seems to me a bit weird But very fine pictures Pieter

Here in Bremen it is allowed going outside two by two if you keep the distance of 1,5 to 2,0 m to other people. When the weather is fine the city parks are very well-frequented. Here is one example from the "Bürgerpark"

Keep Distance please!

2. Railings



3. No Access To Groups - Or Anyone



4. Sand Dune Maker

Best regards, Neil.

From last tuesday in the local park

Warning at the entrance



These people (and the dog) seem to adhere quite well



These less, but they are probably from 1 family, so the 1,5 meter doesn't apply

A couple of residents getting dose of fresh air and vitamin D sunshine in front of their apartment. Taken from across the street on my daily walk with my grand-dog.

How come on aps-c mode, Fred? I have that lens, and used it extensively on my x700 until I bought myself a the f2.8 version. I've always wanted to get the f2 version but never found one (never looked that hard).

Anyway, here's another confinement image, with the MD Rokkor 28/2.8 on the a7

Extreme Social Distancing



For a sunny afternoon this is unheard of...

The lone biker

A7ii + MG Trioplan 100/2.8

Normally every sunny weekend the smaller roads and dikes in Belgium are packed with large groups of cycle tourists (or cycle terrorists as they're sometimes called). Today they were few and far between, and keeping their obligatory social distance
