Still Standing-Alone

Photo taken by contributor Tara, a mom in her mid-30′s who struggles with depression and anxiety. Mental health issues have always played a role in her life, beginning in childhood with a schizophrenic relative, and later another close family member struggling with incorrectly treated depression and anxiety. Tara never realized that mental health issues affected her photography until she began to build up a portfolio. She started noticing themes of brokenness, imperfection, and desolation throughout her work.

About this photo: “’Still Standing-Alone’ is a photo taken at a scenic overlook point.  This solitary tree looked to be the sole survivor in the area for some reason, standing tall all by itself.  It was majestic in a way, one small, single tree overlooking a forest of larger trees, all part of a breathtaking yet terrifying landscape (terrifying to me because I am afraid of heights).
