You capture these stories well with the angles.. Their eyes looking at you..!

The madness of it all reveals it self to anyone who scratches the surface behind the dramatic headlines.. Thougn scary headlines sell ~ fear sells, aye..! Viruses mutate , since time immemorial. So called "Indian variant" is 0.3% different...

Yes, smart composition, engaging angles and your photography draws you into the narrative of the image - nicely done.

OK, so it might be a small mutation, but comment with a set of circumstances the infection rate will be 500 per 100,000 by the end of the week.

Bolton is a commuter feeder for Manchester, and it will inevitably spread to other areas.

As a photojournalist, it's my job to report what is happening. In the Mail's comments last week some deranged folk said all the thousands queuing for vaccines were paid actors. Others said they had been drugged!
