Exquisite Beauty

Photo by contributor John G. Evans, a man who has been suffering since 1972 from what is now known to be a Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder from a trauma faced during military service time. He has discovered that photography and poetry have allowed him a second chance at life, and have released him of his depressive states and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. He recently relocated to Boise, Idaho, to photograph the mountain ranges, rivers, canals, nature, wildlife, landscapes and weather.

About this photo: “A Tulip growing in my beautiful garden in Idaho. To be able to wake on a beautiful Spring-time morning and capture the rare beauty of these lovely plants is exquisite.”

    Wow, just beautiful. My grandfather also had PTSD, although undiagnosed, and he never talked about his experiences in the navy. Maybe that’s a good thing. The only “memories” he gave me were all the coins from the different countries he had kept. I still have the coins. Take good care 🙂

      Thanks so very much for commenting. PTSD is not an easy ordeal. We must try to help each other at whatever stage we are in. I would wish to thank your grandfather for serving in the Navy and yourself for commenting. Thank you!

    Beautiful picture. I like the subtle mood you’ve captured and the soft texture of the flower. 🙂
