Photo taken by contributor Richard in Upstate New York. He’s a 63-year-old man who has suffered from severe depression throughout his life. He is currently going through a particularly lengthy rough patch.
About this photo: “This is a close-up taken of a fire in our fireplace, this image captures the dread and horror I sometimes feel when convinced the pain and depression will never end. Post production was done in Lightroom to enhance the image and bring out the face I hope is apparent.”
