I'll submit mine now because I don't think I'm going to get any more like this for a while. All taken in 2020 and posted without captions per the spirit of the OP.

I have several more. One of the things I did in the early days, was just walk around outside through empty streets and parking lots day after day to get some exercise. I feel a lot of emotion looking back at those photos. Especially one of a tiny solo rollerblader blissfully skating in a giant parking lot with his arms outstretched. I'm torn whether I should include that one instead or one of the other three I submitted. I can't tell if it's a good photo or if it has just mostly private meaning. It was so poignant to see someone happy and enjoying such freedom, after the whole world was shut down.

Si!! Well spotted!

Only time I got airsick flying over them!

Crap pilots threw us all over the place and didn't provide sickbags! 



Me too! Am never sick anywhere, plane, boat or car, but was feeling very queezy over the Nazca lines. The pilot would dive over a figure while I was behind the viewfinder. I did aerobatics in a biplane with no problems at all!!
