This shot pretty much sums up how I feel these days, fairly frequent bombardment of very dark thinking and I rarely have the enthusiasm to go out shooting these days. Wish I could share more images like before but most days I feel like staying to myself. No one really understands this and just thinks your some eccentric nut job because you avoid interaction quite a bit. At least night-time gives me a break while I am sleeping.
With the dark sky the white barn and house really stand out.
thats exactly what drew me to it. thanks
Donald, even in your darkest hour, your photos are absolutely beautiful. I love how the white fence stands out in contrast to the dark sky overhead, separated by beautiful green farmland. How rare and special. Be assured that you and your photos are loved and appreciated.
thanks Carl, thats why it caught my eye. appreciate it
I told my shrink last month that the best part of my day is when I’m unconscious in sleep. Things have got considerably better. I have news for you-not only does everyone understand but millions go through the same thing. Some even come out the other side with a better understanding of how we make ourselves miserable.
good to hear that you are improving. I know of what you speak.
Cheer up and your photos are the best thing ever to readers like me as it showcases your talent😃
Thank you,easier said then done though
Well I guess not everyone understands. There are drugs that can make you feel better in 45 minutes like Xanax or Ativan but they can to be addictive depending on your personality. Something to consider though rather than staring at the clock all day.
I have taken zanax for flying and it gives me a good sleepy effect, but I try not to get involved with it because I fear I would get so reliant on it, that I would be in its grip. one 25 mg relaxes me but I know people who take several a day and get real antsy if they run out.
Please Don, try to get out & about and get more shots like this ! Being selfish here, I been diagnosed w/ cancer and start rad./chemo soon, so your amazing photos will give me something to look forward to each day ! (I hope you are seeing someone and keep trying whatever works for you. You’ve got too much talent to let it go to waste! )
The meds kill my creativity it seems,so without the drive, it is hard. hope your treatments go well for you.
I appreciate your photos very much– I know you spend much time in prep for each one. I appreciate your patience and precision of these photos. Love how the white stands out in contrast to the darkness of the sky. Keep pressing on —
thank you so much
Hang in there. Take it a day at a time (sometimes an hour or minute at a time). Reach out if you need extra support and know that you are not alone. 🙂
thank you. The minute at a time is so true.
Don, i’m very grateful for the beautiful photos you share with us. Thanks for sharing what you are also going through. I like this particular photo because it gives the balance of darkness and light.
typing things is easier than talking. usually winter is bad but summer has been a real treat for me. thanks
💕🌻Absolute love. And thank you for doing what you do. It’s hard, I know. And it’s beautiful. In more ways than one. 💕
Thank you for sharing your great talent of photography. Praying for your recovery from anxiety. I walk everyday, it calms me. I especially enjoy the rail trail and love what you have done by the trail. tyvm . Praying for healing
thank you very much. I appreciate it
I can’t figure out how to post a picture in a comment which is what I wanted to do here. But if you have a chance,
Made it over to Lancaster and found the Gnome Village. So enchanting and magical! The whole trip was magical and all was planned because of your photography ✈💜
hope the heat was bearable. we have had so much rain and flooding and the heat will hopefully leave soon. I hope you got to see some Amish and the countryside.
Yes, spent 3 days there and saw a lot. It was so beautiful and I recognized a lot of places and scenes from your photos! I want to move there now! Ate at the Tomato Pie in Lititz that you recently shot. Stayed in Bird-in-hand. It wasn’t too hot, the clouds and rain helped keep it nice (I love rain). My friend in Albany and her kids all agreed we want to make this an annual trip. We all loved the Gnome Village, it just felt so magical.
thats great, Wish I had been out back to see you. A lot of people visit the bulls head in lititz, which is an authentic english pub which is cool. Strasburg railroad and other spots are good destinations as well.
Next year! And maybe we could all meet up at the pub 🙂
except I don’t drink
Coffee or tea then?
