An excellent way to depict your 2020 experience.

Photographically the first two images are outstanding - as is their effectiveness to carry a message: panic.

Personally the third image has impressed me most. It is a very strong statement - much more puzzling than the first two. It made me think about the legitimacy and moral fitness of anger.

It also made me think about a fourth image that would be different from yours. I think we cannot avoid anger and rather should ask what we do with it, what are the next steps (I am an admirer of Marshall Rosenberg - have a look at his youtube clips) and how we can find out about a positive change.

I have no definite answer, of course, but I thank you very much for making me (again) looking for it!

waldo_posth - Thanks for commenting. I watched a couple of Rosenberg's videos about communication - a very different approach and I liked his explanations.

I see this post only now (thank you Harald for popping this post up ).

Great summary of 2020, photographically, but also story telling. Photos #2 and #3 are very strong and powerful. #1 is very aesthetically appealing. Regarding #4, I guess that by itself, without the context and the story, I wouldn't like it too much, but it fits well the story and I like it within the story.

Your summary is very similar to my 2020, and I guess many more here. Panic (well, I wouldn't call it panic), fear, anger and acceptance can also sum up my 2020. The anger was very strong and it was painful to read some posts of some of my friends on the web. It really made me want to live in an isolated area without seeing people around me.

Thank you for sharing!

Rather ascetic, orderly frames. You can see mature craftsmanship. Maybe also slightly depressive .. but maybe that's just my personal point of view.
