Silence and Awe

Photo taken by Tiger Lillies, a 48-year-old woman located in Ontario who suffers from deep depression, psychosis, and agoraphobia, all while raising her 2 young grandchildren, 4 and 6 years old. Thankfully she has a supportive partner Rick who helps make daily life with children possible. Her grandchildren, as well as her recent love of photography, have become her saviours and kept her from succumbing to the negative temptations that regularly haunt her. She has tried to commit suicide several times in the past, but thankfully is still with us. Her hopes are to get past her illness, as well as glaucoma, and become a professional photographer.

About this photo: “Submitting to Broken Light has become a sort of therapy for me. It gives me a chance to actually look at my photos and find good in them. I hope this photo speaks for it’s self. It was an evening of no talking or thinking. I just sat in awe and watched an amazing show.

    I love to think of the clouds as great piles of dragons swirling over us – here, the great creature can be seen plummeted majestically into the sunset over the ocean.
    I hope many others can find joy in pursuing their artwork such as the taker of this photo.
