Pavement Pandemic Picture Gallery

A few weeks ago I asked you to send your Pandemic Pavement pictures to iPhoneography Central. Thanks so much to everyone who contributed to the gallery, I’ve credited each you with your photos…oh- and I’ve included a few of my own.

Since the pandemic, the pavements have been sprayed, chalked, stencilled, stickered, glued and painted creating a new dance of shapes, lines, marks and textures on our streets.

As well as the interesting visual interplay of these new street graphics with the textured and patterned surfaces they cover and the shadows that fall upon them, it’s interesting to see how, the Covid 19 safety messages are being communicated to citizens around the world, often injecting a bit of humour and emotion to help get the message across.

Thanks to all of you who sent your Pavement images in.
Enjoy the Gallery!

These temporary graphics look great against the different background textures and patterns of the streets and when the sun shines, yet another shape layer is introduced as shadows fall across them.

Below are a few samples from iPC readers from around the world.

    Thank you so much! Very happy to contribute to this great idea of Pavement Pandemic Pictures!
    I still find new ones all the time in Dubai, and I keep on taking pics of them!
    I winder when they will be just historical markings of our social life?

    Great feature Nicki! Thank you for choosing some of my contributions. I think your idea is great as these pavement markings are our today’s graffiti… And even more!
    Most of them show our social reality today, with all of its sadness, but also with a spark of hope!
    I keep on finding new ones, and still take pictiresnof them, hoping one day they will be erased by the passage of time…
    Take care, stay safe!
