29 Mid-Covid Philosophic Photos

Reflection is what this year has given plenty of time for.

On ourselves, our fellow planetarians.

Memories of a different past, hopes for a normal future.

Our faces are covered and our senses have sharpened.

Colours seem brighter but do we see more clearly?

The carpet was pulled from under feet. When shall we stand up again?

Altogether a surreal yet very existential year.
