Absorbing Life

Please say a warm hello to first-time contributor Ben. Ben has an anxiety disorder that manifests itself in OCD and Depression

About these photos: “These were taken in Bedfordshire by myself during the summer of 2014. I was driving past these fields and the clouds were amazing, I pulled over to take a shot and also noticed a collection of wild poppies growing by the side of the field.

Whenever the sun is out and I can feel it’s warmth on my skin, and the fresh air in my lungs I like to just sit and absorb life, these pictures are a reminder of that feeling whenever I am feeling low.”
