Whist in the lockdown period during a sunny 10 days, Galleywood resident Tony Cruse took a collection of household portraits to catalogue a point in time. Using his allotted exercise time and observing social distancing, he brought his Leica camera to various households in Keene Way and Lyon Close took a snap and had a chat. This was a ‘just for fun’ local project, not for profit and no names needed. Tony is hoping to present the actual photographs at a local display later in the year.
