The 7 p.m. applause for healthcare workers, a legacy from the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, is now long gone.
However, a Richmondite continues to bring cheer to the city’s hardworking frontline and healthcare workers through snapping a bunch of photos and sharing them on social media.
“One of the touching and meaningful things that the community used to do was head out to balconies at 7 p.m. to clap and bang pots to support workers,” said Winston Sayson, who has been running around in the Lower Mainland over the past few days capturing murals and signs honouring frontline workers.
“We don’t do this anymore because the pandemic has been around for so long.”
People are welcome to take a look at his photography work on the Community of Richmond Facebook page. Sayson hopes others might find his work relatable and uplifting.
This isn’t the first time for Sayson to showcase his photography skills. People might have come across Sayson’s previous work featuring Christmas light installations and Lunar New Year decorations through the Community of Richmond Facebook group.
