no business

By bliba  
empty streets business.....

Due to the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs strongly advises against all non-essential travel, especially holidays. Continued restrictions on air travel and travel, quarantine measures and extensive restrictions on public life in many countries are to be expected for the time being. In addition, the safety of health care can no longer be guaranteed in many countries.

These are the recommendations of our Federal Ministry of the Interior.
So nothing with holidays abroad .
From tomorrow on, strict mask obligation will apply again and there will certainly be more restrictions.

It's good to hear of the situation where you ere Oliver.
The danger is that people may go mad when restrictions are eased, as has happened here.
Since there's been more travel over the last mont there's been an increse in problems on the roads. Clear streets do therefore hav an appeal.

Not so good news, Oliver, with all the new restrictions. Your image gives a good impression of the starkness of lockdown in the town. The dark mono tones also helps to show this.

The end of the road, and then nothing. Empty void. The end.

Excellent image Oliver very poignant at this time. I believe if we have a second wave it will be a Tsunami and many more people will die🙃

Doesn't sound good. Stay home and stay safe Oliver. Travel is just not worth it. Lucky us who have this great hobby and have thousands of images already. They are just waiting to be edited.
