When left to following the rules most Burlingtonians comply.

A Gazette reporter/photographer  got out into the parks and the waterfront – things were quieter, people were following the rules – getting the exercise and fresh air they needed,

The pictures tell the story.

Ships and fishing

Ships at anchor while a couple test the waters for fish. There were actually three ships at anchor – unusual for Hamilton.

little guy not sure LaSalle May 13

The little guy wasn’t exactly sure what he wanted to do despite a lot of coaxing from Dad; the other two new exactly what they wanted to do,

Looks like this man is working on his tan and doing a crossword puzzle. Great social distancing.

Mom just wants to know why the camera is pointed at her.

Beachway - few people walking

Very few people on the Beach on a Thursday – it will be different on a weekend that is forecast to have great weather.

    Can you actually take pictures of people in public places, showing their faces,
    and then publish them on line?

      In a distant gentler time, you would have to get signed permissions – and could not record people without permission. In the present social media era, it’s the wild west, where the personal privacy of other people means nothing.

      I would have assume you would know; legality. I would not wish someone, anyone taking a picture of my young child in a park, school yard, mall, etc that could end up on the internet without permission from the parent. I hope this helps clarify what is my point.
