That's a great idea! However, even though the traffic is reduced in my area (I live near Connie), there is still too much of it to do the kind of photography you're suggesting.Anyone taking advantage of the reduced traffic to get pictures of your city you have always wanted, or updating images without the obstacles?
Good ideas Mike, but I am not going inside any store other than grocery, and they have special hours for rge seniors, but someone should have told them we rarely get up early enough to be there at 7 AM.That's a great idea!

There are other stories that can be told. As an example, I went to my local Subway sandwich shop. Restaurants are only allowed to serve take-out food, so they piled all the chairs and tables into one corner of the restroom. That made it impossible for anyone to eat in the restaurant. Empty shelves at grocery stores would make good photos. Gas station signs displaying low prices would make good photos. There are probably other opportunities.
Common sense dictates Phil and with the assumed population density there you are being safe. I live in an area of maybe 5 people per square mile, and countywide it is 71 per square mile, unlike the Washington DC area. Everyone stay safe but I wll ake another try in the city soon.I don't advocate people to go out. But when one needs to go out, like going to work(for key workers) or for groceries, it is okay to stop the car for a few seconds to take some photos to record it down, like Tom and Mike said. I have some photos of empty streets and empty malls, but they are all cellphone photos.
I also got such a pic. It has calmed here though I did have to make a 24-mile roundtrip to get the overnight delivery of eggs.:}Yes, the last time I was in the grocery store -- a week and a half ago or longer -- I did use my iPhone to snap off a few shots of empty shelves, as the sight was so stunning. It looked worse than when we've had predictions of a major snowstorm! I'm planning to venture out today and so it will be interesting to see what is and what is not available at the grocery store now.
