2020 Week 5 – National Self-Harm

Two drone shots (using a Mavic Air), one of Gamlingay’s new churchyard and one of trees in Southill. Both views are a refreshing change from being on the ground.

And a “bug hotel” near the Gamlingay churchyard, followed by a bus shelter in St Neots. The latter has “Lest We Forget” on the perspex, along with poppies, but their existence the whole year round probably means that we have forgotten already . . .

And the UK-EU flag is an example of how we might well have forgotten: the combatants of the Second World War would have been proud to be part of a union of European nations, not desperate to leave as we did (nominally, at least) on 31 January 2020. An act of self-harm.
