The Walking Man

By Fefe
Wow.....a massive thank you everyone!
Thrilled to bits with your response to my night to day upload Candlewick....for anyone interested I have now added the real daytime image as a version as promised.

Todays upload is a set from the first lockdown, just before it was coming to an end and the shops were about to reopen.
I wanted to get some images of the city centre without people about and to get a record of the lockdown really.
The Lead is only the lead because I could think of a title for it, maybe not the best of reasons, but the Sculpture is actually called 'The Walking Man'...and I liked the fact that there really was a walking man 😆
Some in mono, some colour and sepia. I hope you like them.

A piece of history, for good or bad, is a moment in time that will never be forgotten. This is another valuable record of these troubled days.

What a fine set Diane, all excellent, love the lead for the walking man and the legendary Crucible theatre - as I love ‘the green beige’ sport. A time travellers set here indeed that you have recorded. Bravo!
Shades of James Taylor’s song too to go with the lead image.

Dave 🙂
A piece of history we hope never to be repeated.
A super set

A great set Diane !!
It must be difficult to reconcile one's self with the complete vacated streets.
V 5 is my favorite.

Never seen Sheffield so empty. Good set Diane. Had a look back at yesterday's version and am even more impressed with your night conversion.

fine urban view in the versions but i love the lead shot featuring a lone walker glued to his phone juxtaposed against a famine-stricken edition of a Rapa Nui statue

The streets were very empty during the first lockdown: if you tried for these same shots today I think you'd find them a lot busier with folk everywhere.
But the set does document the conditions at that time so effectively.

No problems social distancing in these images, Diane 😬 So sad to see our cities deserted like this, but a fine set here, and like especially the Walking Man in the lead 👍 Thanks for adding the original of Runswick Bay in your previous upload, so beautiful there 😃😃
