Flaneuse on Furlough

I haven’t actually been furloughed as I’m a small business owner and as soon as the virus and the fear hit the UK, my two businesses came to an abrupt halt: photographing architecture, interiors and events as well as superhosting an Airbnb space.  This time of quarantine has made me even more grateful for ‘finding photography’ as it has made my love of city wandering even more wonderful.  Some say that you aren’t living in the moment if you’re taking a picture of it, but if you’re a photographer — as in someone who wants to paint the essence of what you’re seeing — then photography is much more akin to contemplation.  I don’t think I’ll ever take my wonder hunting for granted again.
