Lockdown Garden

The Covid-19 lockdown has put my street photography on hold. Yet, it has given me plenty of time to explore our garden, document nature's unfolding, and try new photographic techniques.

What have I learned? First, constraints drive creativity. Second, there are countless photographic opportunities on just 60 square meters.
