  7. Beautiful photos, Jane.

    Hope you and the family are doing okay in keeping distant. These are strange days to say the least. We’ve been on the gray and dreary side the past few days. Yesterday, we had a break with sunny, kind of warm day. Today, it’s back to gray and dreary with fog. Keep well.

    • Hi Bobby, I’m so glad you enjoyed the post. Thanks so much. I’m pleased you loved that quote–so perfect for now. We have been isolating in SF for a couple weeks now and it is highly recommended that grandparents stay away from young children, so there’s that. No contact. Thankful for FaceTime! Love to you all. Be safe and stay healthy! xoxoxo

  9. Lots of time for photo editing indeed. We are the lucky ones with some elbow room… making social distancing so much easier as well as pleasant.
    You and yours stay healthy, too.

  10. Fabulous words and images, Jane!! I love how you’ve visualized social distancing. It’s also an important message right now. We are wise to follow that advice from our medical experts. I hope millions of people are following it. I always appreciate your visual inspiration, Jane!

  17. I knew I could depend on you for some timely comments on the current situation. I think you know I’ve always been very fond of your photos that show one or two people in a vast landscape, and it’s true this time, too. In addition to focusing on the person in the landscape, this series reflects the atmosphere of your region beautifully, from city to hills to shoreline. But the blinds – that made me smile! Stay well, Jane. ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. With the exception of one friend photographer many years ago, social distancing has always been my photographic practice as well as the relief and refreshment that nature provides the human spirit. Your images capture that. You and yours stay well also, Jane.

    • Well said, Steve. As photographers and observers, we do practice it to a large extent. It was good to get out of the city and refresh ourselves in these small (and empty) coastal towns. Thank you very much. Stay healthy. ๐Ÿ’™

    And at least we outdoorsy types can boast of practicing “social distancing” before it became a buzz-word… ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Well itโ€™s a very strange time Jane thatโ€™s for sure. Trying hard not to worry, but thatโ€™s difficult when everything you view, read or listen to these days that is news related is about Covid-19….and some of that is increasingly hysterical and hyped. Letโ€™s hope that things calm down and get back to normal asap….although I fear that will be a few months off yet. ๐Ÿ˜ท

        • In SF, we are taking isolation and social distancing very seriously. Everyone needs to get on board to flatten the rising curve of infection, especially young people. Yes, we are in for a long health crisis given the disorganization at the start.
