The Distance Project 40
In August this year, 13 months or so after the lockdown restrictions were greatly relaxed, I went Central Milton Keynes to see what shoppers are now doing in the way of Covid precautions.
As you might have noticed on your own shopping trips, some people people still wear a mask; you may still be wearing one when you go out.
But it’s far more unusual than it was a year and a month earlier; I had to wait with my camera for quite a while before I could get any photos at all with mask wearers. Last year it had been a matter of minutes before I found my subjects.
Again, I’ve included a few shots from my 2021 look at shoppers in Central Milton Keynes. You can see more photos from then at the link below, and to see more of The Distance Project, please click the link in the Categories list, in the sidebar.

Freedom! (29th July 2021)
“It was Freedom Day, Monday the 19th. I went to Central Milton Keynes to see what was happening; would everybody be maskless?
No, they wouldn’t. A good third, maybe more of everyone I saw wore a mask. I could see no pattern in who wore a mask and who didn’t, except that older people were perhaps a bit more likely to.”
This year, I had to wait quite a while before somebody with a mask walked by. Unlike the previous photo,this year I saw just one person at a time, nearly always on their own, or sometimes a couple wearing masks.
