Creativity to cheer others up and fun in the sunshine feature in your entries for our photographic competition, Snapshot Kent.
Throughout the coronavirus outbreak, all of us have had to find new ways to connect, have fun and keep active.
We may at times feel lonely, frustrated and anxious about the future but we're pulling together to get through lockdown and we're sharing some of the ways you've been doing it with Snapshot Kent.
We want to see what you are doing in the lockdown period; how you spend your time; how you video chat with family and friends; how you spend Friday nights in your home without going out, and above all, how you have fun together.
And you've been busy sending us your entries all this week.
Today, they include Heather Elder's picture of her seven-year-old daughter Sofia Friday, from Dymchurch, (pictured dressed as her favourite Harry Potter character, Hermione), with her chalk drawing outside her house. "She made a big hopscotch along our path for people to do whilst having their daily exercise. Many people are doing it still after it being there for 4 days, she wanted to make people smile."
We've also had wildlife and picturesque scenes, as well as a beach scene from Anne Thornhill who brought the seaside to her home, as she couldn't go there herself.
Entries need to be just one snapshot, taken in your home or garden between now and the day lockdown is lifted.
Apart from that anything goes. Your picture can be candid or staged, funny or contemplative.
Here's a gallery or some of our latest entries:
We want Snapshot Kent to be a record of local life during this pandemic, and we will be using as many as possible to create an online gallery and in our newspapers too.
It will be a chance for us all - and future generations - all to see how the people of Kent got through these extraordinary times.
