Photo taken by contributor Ty Fitzgerald, a man who has been diagnosed with Bipolar II. Ty has a fondness for Lo-fi and Lux filters because they intensify shadows, highlights and colors. Such photos visually represent the way he sees the world, a little brighter and darker than he imagines those without bipolar disorder see the world.
About this photo: “This photo of a lamppost is compelling because of a menacing sky moving towards a single light. I think this can be taken two ways. It is either the power of light holding steadfast against the storm, or the certainty that the storm will destroy the light. In Florida we have incredible sunsets with amazing clouds almost every day, but I was so overwhelmed with these clouds, I had to run out of my house and photograph them.”
