Photo taken by contributor Danielle in NYC. She is on the bipolar spectrum. She loves her family, art, and helping other people.

About this photo: “So often when I’m rushing from point A to point B, I forget to look up and enjoy the wonder all around, whether I’m in nature or the middle of a city. Taking photos helps me slow down and appreciate the beauty and uniqueness wherever I am.

    Thanks, it’s nice to have a beautiful urban pic on the site, as we often have a lot of rural stuff posted already . . . also, I just was diagnosed a couple weeks ago with bipolar disorder, after having received a major depression label for yrs. . . .

    I so agree that taking photos helps you slow down. It also keeps you looking for things you don’t usually notice.

    I like how the building is centered. I agree that photography causes me to slow down and appreciate life. When I have my camera & am taking pictures in nature, that is the only time my anxiety dissipates & my focus settles.

    Nice take on the Monument theme! I assume that’s the Empire State Building? It’s certainly a building among buildings. It may not be the tallest anymore but it’s still one of the best, as far as I’m concerned. I mean, how can you beat the name itself? The Sears Tower? Nyah! No class. 🙂

    You’re welcome to come and see what my take on the theme is:
