I have always been passionate about photography.

I have so many friends and am very active in outdoor activities. I never really realized the importance of my mum’s advice, when she used to say that I should learn to be joyful and satisfied in my own company. I should feed my well-being when I am alone as well. However, during this confinement, this came to be, as I had no choice but to learn how to be well and joyful – alone.

I tried to be creative in a safe way. I decided to use my love for photography. For these macro photos, I have used my phone and a home-made macro lens I built by dismantling an old broken camera.

I am blessed to live on a beautiful island, where we have many endemic flowers and insects. I’m fascinated by how inanimate things come to life after the rains, and in the early morning dew.

What I have learnt through this period of quarantine is that I am never alone; nature can be a great companion. I can be quiet and full of joy and wonder.
