Lockdown South Africa; Day 2


For 21 days I will document the lockdown in our village (Napier, Western Cape, South Africa). All landscape pictures were made in advance. The other photographs from the comfort of home, sweet home. All photo’s in Black & White. 1 Photo daily.

    1. We knew what was coming. The president and his cabinet here proved that they can be very decisive and until so far police, assisted by the army, succeeded so far. And I hope that those 21 days will be over without more casualties ( 1 so far and 1170 in self-isolation of which 5 or so in IC). As for us: Since the outbreak we kept ourselves low profile; just the occasional ‘bulk-shopping’ at the less busy hours. Luckily we have a major commission of the university for an instruction film which can be shot indoors and which will keep us busy for the next 2 to 3 weeks plus some days for montage and finalising. ❤

      1. Yes, that was certainly very decisive action on the part of the SA governemnt. From what we have seen on social media here it looks like trhe government is managing very firmly too.
        Hopefully it will pass quickly with few deaths. I see the UK has passed the 1000 death mark today.
        I occasionally work from home and can do most of my work from home, so it’s largely business as usual for me.
        It sounds like you will be busy anyway.
