I hesitate to say this, but didn’t you know you could watch most broadcast TV on your computer over the Internet?

No TV here, either. 4:39 am and I guess I'm up for the day. The question, is do I leave my cozy bed, under covers with coffee, or do I head out to shoot Easter sunrise? Clear skies, ocean a half mile away. Yeah, okay. Happy Easter. Sara

Don’t know if you’re allowed to post this, but at least you can see it..

Mike,

CBS News has also posted a snapshot of Peter’s images and words on their website. TV not required:)

Video here (~1'15" running time):

although I suspect some TOP readers will prefer the gallery presentation:

I believe the images in this presentation have previously appeared on Peter's social media outlets.

Enjoyed the photos, didn't like the presentation. I hate when television slow zooms and pans the images. The photographer's vision should not be reinterpreted by some TV producer.

Phones, tablets, and computers are TVs, just with smaller screens.

Down here in Australia we are living with rules that mostly allow only "essential" activities and outings. I think that we can definitely make a case that documentary photography of our cultural responses to the virus and the restrictions we are living with is an essential activity.

I have alerted many friends to Peter's ongoing diary. It's essential reading.
