The second Melbourne, Australia lock down has just been implemented
After being in and out of lock downs in Spain and England and quarantine in a Melbourne Hotel, this second lockdown in Melbourne has finally anchored me.
Famous landmarks of the usually bustling city cast with an almost ghostly quietness
Even the usually bustling Victoria Market with its colourful displays of produce, like the life has been sucked out of its ancient stalls and sheds
No queuing four deep at my favourite stall
Chance meeting with someone I hadn’t seen for a while
Little is left to chance in the time of coronavirus
At the eastern end of the city
The Monuments, the Shrine of Remembrance and the Old Observatory along with Gardens and the floral clock stand alone
In the lanes and alleyways of the inner city
The graffiti almost mocks the quiet desolation
The next 6 weeks (the length of this lockdown) will be a time and thought of what has been and what will be.
Something different to share over the coming weeks.
