Quarantine | The Lockdown Version | 1 day to go…

There are some masterpieces that I will never be able to depict exactly as they were gifted to me. A masterpiece as such is the sky as it frames everything we perceive as our surroundings, the smells that elevate our spirit and cause our faces to be raised due to the satisfaction we are experiencing, […]

Quarantine | The Lockdown Version | 2 days to go…

What if nature did take over? What if plants grew on the remains of people’s version of meaning? What would be the proof that you ever existed? What would prove that you ever stood out? Who would be the judge of that and who would stay to celebrate the memory of you? I’ve never heard […]

I am not a photographer. I never wanted to become one. There are however times when you are walking on the street, listening to a beautiful song and as that perfectly intact sequence of words, notes and vocals gets your mind daydreaming, you find your eyes opening to find a random point in your surroundings.

Quarantine | The Lockdown Version | Day #2

Quarantine | The Lockdown Version | Day #1

I freaked out. I shouted. I swallowed my voice ten times today. I pretended to be happy for some friends on the social media. I avoided the friends I have recently acquired.
