Living in lockdown
Updated: Dec 29, 2020
A glimpse of some mesmerizing quarantine scenes from the U.S. to NZ.
How did you spend quarantine? For some good friends of Bobsnbits, it was a great time to get very creative! Katherine Bonner & Keith Tannock, two former TV news journalists who’ve worked in London & on their home turf of New Zealand, made the most of a social media trend last spring – they dressed up to stay entertained in lockdown but with their own ingenious & comical flair! Keith dusted off an old waistcoat, they found a tripod, concocted a Victorian theme & they were off to the races. Their regular posts delighted & surprised friends around the world as each installment outdid the last. We’re thrilled to share a look at a few of our favorites & all nine “tableaux” that made 2020 a little more entertaining!
It’s hard to think back now to March & April when the worldwide lockdown was such a shocking concept. In the spring, National Geographic eerily documented the global shutdowns by sending a handful of photojournalists to capture these previously-bustling ghost towns around the world. Even months later, the images are jarring, moving & still somehow hard to believe. But there’s also a tranquilness to seeing these public spaces bereft of activity. Hopefully these famous backdrops will look vastly different soon!
