Please give a warm welcome to first-time contributor Peter, a man in hit forties from the United Kingdom. Peter has been suffering from PTSD and related anxiety and depression since a kidnap and hostage incident in 1997. He is still taking regular medication. He finds that some days are easy, almost untroubled, while other days are still extremely difficult.
About this photo: “I took this photo while working on a project in India. I was waiting at a bus stop and liked the idea of this photo. It was a struggle to keep the shutter slow enough to blur the bus in bright sunlight and at the same time not massively over expose and also hope the subjects didn’t move so they stayed relatively sharp. Worked better in black and white as the colours of the bus distracted too much from the people in the picture.”
