Manmade Objects & Nature on My Covid Walks in Vancouver

For the first six weeks of the coronavirus I mostly stayed inside, mainly because every time I did go out there were so many people, especially hundreds of joggers, and I couldn’t seem to get away from them.

Things opened up a bit last week and the number of people out and about thinned out a lot as they spread out to the beaches and other newly opened areas.

I managed to go for a number of walks, mostly in residential zones where I found a number of things to take photos of, especially liking things that were man-made combined with nature.
