A slice of light in a slice of time... Covid-19 London Lock-down

On my street, en route to the local London park, there are two railway arches with a small gap between them.

I noticed a momentary shaft of sunlight slicing through the grim darkness of the under-bridges.

Each sunny lock-down day I popped out for 15 minutes to photograph the very few people who passed through the fleeting sunbeam heading to, or from their daily exercise allowance.

I became intrigued by documenting a slice of transient time within this slice of historical time.

Reflective portraits in lockdown isolation 

During the Covid-19 isolation lock down I took reflective portraits of my neighbours in Hackney.
