17 April 2021: The rays of light we have seen over the past few weeks have given way to some uncertainty. On average during the last seven-day observation period, the week to 13 April, 3,755 new cases of coronavirus were confirmed each day. The figure is up 4% on the week. Hospital admissions are down slightly, but still insufficiently to remove the pressure on the hospitals. Despite that the engine driving the fall is starting to stall, schools will reopen and the ban on non-essential travel will be lifted as of Monday. I’m holding my breath… In time vaccination will help, but for the time being vaccination levels are too low for them to have a substantial impact. Net-net, we did not yet weather the storm. On display is another vignette of life in Ghent during this unprecedented crisis – Citadelpark, Ghent, Belgium.
WELCOME TO MY PHOTOGRAPHY BLOG AND PORTFOLIO. MY GOAL IS TO DOCUMENT THE WORLD AROUND ME, FROM THE SMALL DETAILS OF EVERYDAY LIFE TO THE GRAND LANDSCAPES THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY. WHETHER I'M AT HOME OR TRAVELING TO NEW PLACES, I AM ALWAYS ON THE LOOKOUT FOR NEW AND INTERESTING SUBJECTS TO PHOTOGRAPH. MY PHOTOGRAPHS ARE A VISUAL DIARY OF MY EXPERIENCES AND A WAY TO SHARE THE WORLD AS I SEE IT WITH OTHERS. I HOPE YOU ENJOY EXPLORING MY COLLECTION AND DISCOVER THE BEAUTY OF THE WORLD THROUGH MY LENS.
