During the Covid pandemic, the momentum of the daily life slowed down. Outside for solitary expeditions, the familiar transformed into a new kind of magical discovery, as if witnessed for the first time.
It was a time to stop and look at the details in my familiar environment. I felt like a child who with each step and each moment caught a fresh glimpses and new discovery.

Lisa is continuing her journey looking for new Hidden Homes.
