There is Always a Story by Kirsten Bruening

There is always a story behind the frame. Yesterday’s the past, tomorrow’s the future, but today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present. This photo was taken early Good Friday morning. At a time when the whole world was in lockdown over Covid-19. Millions of people worldwide were infected and so many has died from the virus. With every day that our planet is in lockdown, we can see how our earth, nature, climate, wildlife, oceans and seas are recovering. We should change things after this struggle, we should take care of our earth, the environment and not take everything for granted, so that not only today but also tomorrow is a gift.
