I spent most of 2020 in a hospital with a severe pancreatic disorder. For a long time, I didn’t even have enough strength to hold a camera, let alone stand up and take pictures. Towards the end of the year, when I was at home and able to gather enough strength, I took a few pictures from my window. Mostly birds and plants that are commonly found in this area.

I spent most of 2020 in a hospital with a severe pancreatic disorder. For a long time, I didn’t even have enough strength to hold a camera, let alone stand up and take pictures. Towards the end of the year, when I was at home and able to gather enough strength, I took a few pictures from my window. Mostly birds and plants that are commonly found in this area.

In a way, not being able to move around and take photographs outside has made me appreciate the joys of photographing small things. These are not the greatest of photographs from any point of view, but personally these are some of my favourite photographs ever.
