Photo taken by contributor Ashley Lily Scarlett aka Syncopated Eyeball, a 53-year-old woman who has experienced bouts of depression of various degrees, on and off since she was 12-years-old. She also suffers from anxiety, gets easily over stimulated, and has a bit of social phobia. Recently she finally received a diagnosis of bipolar type II, so she will now hopefully be directed to more appropriate medications. Blogging and photography are very important to her. Usually when she is taking or editing her photographs, everything else disappears from her consciousness and she is firmly ‘in the moment’.
About this photo: “Here’s my beloved sister; she did the make-up herself and it was her first attempt. Kerry and I share a quirky sense of humour and we both have a playful streak, as evidenced here; this was done just for the fun of it. She is a blessing in my life.”
