Our everyday lives have changed dramatically due to everything going on in the world today. With physical limitations on movement, the situations and objectives in taking photographs may have changed as well. Photographs are a device to save and remember the past, calling to mind the past, future, or the ties to people or places. Close family and those around us, places and communities, other living things?through the "co-exist" theme, the memories and time contained in photographs may shine a light that will guide us toward our future. Please freely capture the images that come to mind in each of your hearts.
