Lens-Artists Challenge – Lockdown Creativity

As for me, it ain’t much fruitful!

As the world embraced the new and strange norms because of COVID-19, I was certainly not an exception.

Since March 17th 2020, I’m staying and working from my home, with few exceptions of visiting close relatives or going out for groceries, while following the SOPs.

This long duration should’ve been fruitful for my photography but sadly, it didn’t happened.

Because of spending most of my day at work from home (WFH).

Having an option of WFH during this pandemic, in which countless lost their only source of income due to global economic meltdown, I feel completely blessed by having a job in my hand and monthly income to feed my family.

But I did ventured towards creativity whenever I could, which is fine for me.

So, I present few selected creative snaps captured by me during this lockdown era:


I should have gone on more floral photo walks in my neighborhood during this period than my entire life but sadly, this didn’t happened. One day, I forced myself out for this and captured some snaps, one of which is above.


Home is where the heart is and I’m enjoying every moment inside of it. Looking out for something new indoors is bit challenging but patience can hand over some greatness.


One day, I decided to play with LEGO style bricks myself but sadly, my creativity didn’t made me feel like Wow!


So, I decided to let Uzair, my 7-year old son, to do what he does best.


And these two are just really the tip of his creative iceberg 🙂


On the other hand, nature’s creativity remained above everything else and I enjoyed capturing the snaps during the monsoon showers that hit my city in July.

      Thank you very much, Patti. He loves to play with his Lego set every day and creates his own version of things, which is good.

    Your son is creative – our children help us in this I believe!

      He plays with it almost everyday and loves to show me his new creation. And you are quite right, my son is helping me going through all the negativity I see in the world, which I’m keeping him safe from.

      Thank you so very much, John. This weekend, I may have to go few extra miles as working will continue for me 🙂

    Thanks for joining the challenge Hammad. Yes those who can work from home (or who, like me, are retired) are far better off than those who have lost their jobs. We all seem to agree it has been difficult to maintain our energy as it relates to creativity. Hopefully this week’s challenge has spurred us on a bit!

      It was a perfect theme, I say. And to keep their jobs in hand, countless are willing to go extra miles. This weekend, I will be one of those 🙂
