We are living through a moment in history we wish was done and over, but is not.
As we undertake the necessary steps of Self-isolation there is one aspect that is hard to ignore … boredom. We know that self-isolation is the correct way to deal with the issue of Covid 19, but as photographers and artists, we have that constant urge to create art. To that end, I’ve gone through some of my ideas in our blog to give you 10 suggestions for things to try. If you are looking to kill even more time, don’t read this list, just start reading every one of my Blog stories until you find something you like.
Yeah, the list seems like a better idea, huh?

If this didn’t work, you can always go back to Netflix.
Seriously though, please do what you can to stay safe and healthy.
We will get through this.
