Lockdown across the world has had both pros and cons. People are learning to go out less often and use time productively while indoors. Travel and leisure activities may have been temporarily suspended, but one travel blogger has used this time to create something interesting. Erin Sullivan, who goes by the username @erinoutdoors on Instagram, has made a photo-series with the hashtag #OurGreatIndoors. The picture series is aimed at recreating scenic outdoors while indoors using household food items. Take a look at some pictures from the series:
Erin Sullivan's captures are reminiscent of real outdoor places, which we could travel and escape to, but would be difficult to visit due to the current Coronavirus crisis. According to Sullivan, she is simply trying to capture the feeling of being in those places in her own way. "For me, photography has been a way to capture the feeling in a fleeting moment," she wrote in her Instagram post.
Talking about the inspiration behind the series, Erin agrees that she probably wouldn't have come up with the idea had she not been in quarantine. "Would I have started this series without being forced to stay home? No way. I was fulfilled by what I was doing as a travel photographer, and I look forward to getting back out into the world one day. Soon I hope. But man, what an opportunity to pivot, to stretch creatively, to try something new," revealed Erin Sullivan.
