21st August 2020, Singapore, Asia – During the Phase 1 Covid-19 Circuit Breaker in Singapore, the team at Ourshutterjourney decided to keep the photography community going and created a SJS Telegram Group and surprised the members with a Daily Photography theme that can be produced, share or achieved without really leaving their homes. A total of 59 photography themes were shared to the group in which many participated. What we didn’t share to the participating members – their photos will be picked by the Chief Editor (AL Lee) to be featured as “Editor’s Picks”.
The themes given ranges from everyday scenes/ items to abstracts/ artistic to nostalgic/ contemporary. All the 59 themes were contributed and suggested by Chief Editor AL Lee, Sub-Editor Lee Shi Qing & Contributing Editor Melody Tan. And the 59 themes were created in 1 hour – unbelievable.
For this feature, all the submitted images are curated & selected based on the relevance to the theme, the presentation and also (somehow) reflected back on the crazier things we do during the
home confinement circuit breaker. Here we go!

Editor AL: “The photospam themes were designed to keep everyone busy during the Covid-19
Lockdown Circuit Breaker in Singapore. While no one was really allowed to be outside their homes, we started this Telegram group and push out daily themes so that those that wish to participate may participate. In fact, when we were looking through all the theme postings, we are in fact happy to see many was trying their best to be creative and to be making do with whatever they have or available to them.
