Photo taken by contributor Morgan, a 20-year-old woman living in California. Morgan has suffered from bipolar depression and anxiety for many years now. Her mental health improved greatly after the birth of her daughter, when she felt true unconditional love from someone. Morgan began to explore photography a few years ago as a way to escape.
About this photo: “I took this photo a while ago when the Powerball lottery game craze was going on. It ended up getting to like 1.3 billion dollars until someone finally won. It was crazy. So many people were hopeful and buying 20 tickets at once to make their odds greater. I found this Powerball ticket there the day after someone won. It really captivated me. Like all hope was gone and just thrown off to the side.”
