Photo taken in upstate New York by a woman who suffers from major depressive disorder. She is married with one child, and loves to photograph them and anything else she sees through her lens.
About this photo: “When I’m depressed, I’m in my own world, even if I don’t want to be. I always want to be alone, for obvious reasons, and stay in, but when it comes to holidays such as Thanksgiving, my husband thinks that it is important to be with extended family beyond our own little family unit. I agreed, for him, to leave and go my Aunt’s farm in the country. It really is beautiful there and I’m glad I went. I was able to spend time with family who I rarely get to see – some of whom can even empathize with my situation – got to eat delicious food, get kissed by a horse, and even have some alone time to reflect in front of the breathtaking reflections of sunset on her pond.”
