All #WFH and no play? Here are some Zoom backgrounds for your meetings to lift your spirits up!

Oh, my! What a couple of weeks it has been.

Are you already tired of the endless paranoia? the news? your home? cooking everyday? working out in the living room? kids? significant other? Pet?... Nah!, not the pet... they have been our saviors sent from heaven during all this mess, haven't they?

Don't we miss the little things the most? That great little eatery just around the corner, our favorite brunch spot, bar, walk on the park... for most of us Miami residents one of the things we miss the most is being outside in this great March weather!

I noticed that some of my friends have been relying on ZOOM meetings like a pirate relies on his wooden leg to get things done at the new, improvised home office.

Since they cannot go out, and you probably can't get out either I am bringing a little bit of my Miami to your screens. These are a series of photographs I took of my tape installations around Wynwood back in the day, and a couple of tape installations on the beach.

Add these backgrounds to your ZOOM meeting repertoire to inject some new life into your daily digital contact with the corporate world.

Hope you enjoy them, and make sure you share them with your friends and colleagues.
