Before The Storm

Photo taken by contributor Danielle in NYC, a woman who has been diagnosed with Bipolar II and Borderline Personality Disorder, among other things. Photography is an outlet and coping tool that helps her through the challenging times.

About this photo: “I feel like there is always some sort of storm brewing in my life. A stormy relationship. A work storm. A mental or emotional storm. I often feel like the dark clouds in this photo… holding the storm within them, positioned, and just on the verge of bursting. Or the water tower, filled and waiting for its contents and inner self to be released.
