Even Barbie Can Have A Bad Day

Photo taken by contributor Jim, a man from Texas who has struggled with depression for much of his life.

About this photo: “Even Barbie is going to have a bad day sometimes.

I found this head of a Barbie doll in a lush local park. There are plenty of more beautiful subjects in the park, but seeing this image amongst the lushness made me return home to collect my camera.

Her blue eyes and red lips showed the remembrance of better days gone by. Along with the promise that things do get worse and things do get better. Weather your storms.”

    It is a little freaky but dolls just are sometimes. Don’t you just love moments like this, coming across some weird out of place? I always hope I can treat it properly, which I think you did. 🙂

    I Love this photograph. It tells a story, it has a good composition, the colors are beautiful and the lighting is perfect. This is how I often feel like or look like almost regularly. It represents my battles affectively. Thank you.
