Photo taken by n23art who has struggled with depression much of his life. Most of the time it’s manageable, but there have been a few times when it has hit him very hard. He is originally from the UK, but currently lives in Thailand.
About this photo: “Sometimes when I’m out I’ll see something and think to myself “I wish I had my camera with me” Other times I go out with my camera and I never take a single shot, either because I don’t feel inspired or I don’t see anything of interest.
This was not one of those days. Chiang Mai is an ancient city and the old city walls are surrounded by a moat. While out for a walk I saw two boys climbing the walls and I thought “surely they’re not going to jump into the moat?” of course they did and were good enough to jump several times to make sure I got enough shots.
Part of me thought they were crazy but another part of me admired the freedom of their fearlessness.”
