Photo taken by contributor Luis Rosado, a man from Staten Island, NY who has been suffering from anxiety and depression for over 30 years. After struggling with an alcohol problem for over two decades, Luis is celebrating more than six years of sobriety. Photography has always been a wonderful outlet for him to capture and hold on to the brighter moments in his life.
About this photo: “The title of this photo is “Higher Power.” Taken a few years ago in Brooklyn, N.Y. At the time my soon to be wife and I were having to run around to get documentation in order to be married in the church. I happened to look up at this very impressive church and there was my photo. In recovery there is always talk about putting your trust in a power greater than yourself. The thing is that, to me, it’s the sky and clouds in the picture not the church. From the second I took the photo I knew.”
