2016 / 2020 – Whitstable – UK
“What makes the flag on the mast to wave? What makes the elephant charge his tusk in the misty mist, or the dusky dusk? What makes the muskrat guard his musk? Courage! What makes the sphinx the seventh wonder? Courage! What makes the dawn come up like thunder? Courage! What makes the Hottentot so hot? What puts the “ape” in apricot?”
L. Frank Baum
8th May 2020; Early May Bank Holiday and VE Day “Courage” Celebrations. I have returned back to the same spot where I photographed the 2016 Bank Holiday weekends Social Interaction and colourful vibrancy of Whitstable Beach. Today deep into the Coronavirus Lockdown it’s all become a very different looking place, even the Boat Masts are Social Distancing at 2m apart, and the flags are limp; I think we all could do with that extra bit of Courage!
During lockdown I have been living in Whitstable; photographs taken have been during my local daily exercise walk with two cameras strapped over shoulders looking to capture a moment from these strange times. This photograph is part of the Covid19 Lockdown Collection, see the others images that make up this interesting documentary collection.
This image is one from a number of pieces of photographic art that makes up our Covid19 Collection. Also available as Premium Prints and Limited Edition Prints (framed or unframed).
