COVID-19 has taken away the little “PLEASURES” in our everyday and we are now forcibly expected to adapt to a new lifestyle. As we are increasingly anxious of how and when this pandemic will end, we are all looking for new kinds of “PLEASURES” that can be experienced amidst these hard times. Due to the lack of physical interactions with each other, this is the time to reassess our reality from a different perspective and let us find new ways to enjoy our lives. It could be something we know from pre-COVID, other “PLEASURES” that we have recently discovered or whatever we are hoping to experience in the near future; Share with us photographs that let us rethink what “PLEASURE” represents.
