The Loneliness by Kirsten Bruening

This photograph was taken during the lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It shows a lonely city during the late afternoon. Under normal circumstances the streets would be filled with life, people would be on the streets doing their shopping. Today it is only quiet, quiet and lonely and only a few people get lost in the city.
