Please welcome first-time contributor Sheri Elizabeth, a 43-year-old woman from the Southeast who has struggled with anxiety and depression for many years. In addition to fighting these demons daily, she also now suffers from chronic pain as a result of the ongoing tension. She finds solace in photography because it forces her to slow down and take notice of the little details in everyday life that might otherwise go unnoticed. Whatever worries or fears she has are temporarily forgotten while photographing a scene.
About this photo: “I found this piece of pollen in the yard and upon closer examination, decided it might make for an interesting photograph. Imagine my surprise when l looked through my macro lens and discovered it had a tiny eye.“
