6 February 2021: The coronavirus figures show further falls in the number of hospitalisations and deaths among people with COVID-19. Meanwhile, in the week to 2 February on average 2,308 people tested positive each day in Belgium. The figure is up 1% on the week. By 3 February (the most recent date for which figures are available) 307,386 people in Belgium had been given their first dose of coronavirus vaccine. This is 3.3% of the adult population. Every person that is vaccinated is a victory, but we are still not talking about gigantic figures and it will definitely not prevent a third wave. Despite that we still have a long way to go and that we are urged to continue to adhere to the measures that were put in place to curb the spread of the virus, the government has decided that hairdressers will be allowed to reopen from next Saturday. I’m looking very much forward to continuing to document Ghent without having my hear peeking in different directions. In today’s picture I like how the red of “the-black-lives-matter mural” complements the green of the adjacent house – Kruideniersstraat, 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.
