2020 has indeed been a wild ride!
This year taught me to be patient and flexible, and to be stronger, more resilient than I ever dreamed. Lockdown forced me to slow down, photography, in so many was my therapy.
Living in The Cayman Islands, we experienced strict lockdown for 3 months. We were allowed 1-2 hours a day for exercise. I bought a bike, rode for miles everyday, wandered and breathed in the fresh air. Lucky to live near the ocean, I stopped often to soak in the beauty of nature, camera on my back grabbing photos along the way. I tried to focus on the positive things I saw, the beauty of Cayman and also the world we live in. Colorful sunrises and sunsets, empty and quiet roads.
I shared my photos everyday, which, to me, was important as the months went by with so much death, hate and negativity in our social and media streams. I felt the world also needed to be reminded that beauty does exist.
I was inspired by the bright Caribbean colors and found peace through creativity.
I hope sharing some of my favorite 2020 images has given you inspiration and appreciation for how despite, living with and through some uncertain times, photography can help us through the darkest times.
Wishing you all a Happy New Year and a better 2021. You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re reading the last one.
