Painting with Light

Photo taken by contributor Danielle, a bipolar woman in her thirties. Her mood shifts leave her either able to do nothing at all or an extraordinary amount all at once. She likes photography because it is something she can do any time, even when she swings to an extreme in either direction.

About this photo: “This photograph is a long exposure light creation. I like that it is chaotic but there is beauty in the chaos. It reminds me of mania in the midst of depression, something I have been dealing with recently and on and off throughout the years.
