Photo taken by first-time contributor Sam, a soon-to-be teenager from the very South of Texas. Sam lives with severe Attention Deficit Disorder. The challenges he experiences due to lack of focus or hyper focus make it especially hard for him at school. He wishes that other kids would take ADD more seriously, and not just use it as an excuse to get out of homework. Taking pictures and making videos and video games has become a way for Sam to channel what is going on inside.
About this photo: “Beauty in the gloom. Most people will take rainstorms as something gloomy or dreadful but you can get something beautiful out of it if you just look at it from the right angle.“
