March was when Covid-19 hit Europe recognizably. What started out as a promising month with nature coming to life and the sun wakening us from hibernation, soon turned into a situation that was new (and unexpected!) to all of us. Looking back, there are a few pictures that document those early days last year that introduced us to a different reality:

1) One last day working outside of my home at the library. Of course I didn’t know then that it would be the last time for a very long time.
2) First empty shelves in supermarkets. I don’t get it, even now. There was and is enough of everything. We survived. We didn’t go hungry. You don’t need closets full of toilet paper.
3) A strange reality that was hard to face.
4) Spring had something dark and sinister that year. We all held our breaths, waiting for new developments.
5) Trying to find light (and love) in the times of darkness and uncertainty.
6) Suddenly, movies about the apocalypse and zombies and mutant viruses were all the rage on streaming portals.
7) Looking at the world outside from a safe distance. Watching, waiting, hoping.
8) Spring despite Covid. That was true for nature and we tried to be outside as much as we could.
9) The car became my new office since libraries and cafés were closed. The only place I could work at in peace and silence for a few hours in a row. Good things were created here.

I am so glad I kept going for all of 2020 with my 366 project. Here are my favourites from March:

61/366, 2. 63/366, 3. 64/366, 4. 65/366, 5. 68/366, 6. 71/366, 7. 72/366, 8. 78/366, 9. 90/366

How do you remember March? What were your thoughts when Covid hit? How did you have to adjust?
