Time To Move On

Photo taken by contributor Kevin Wayne Gardner, a 53-year-old man from Oklahoma who has suffered with bipolar disorder all his life. He deals with his illness through counseling and photography. While he is out shooting photos, he is able to focus on his subject matter, and concentrate solely on getting a great photo.

About this photo: “When I first captioned this photo, I wrote the following…

This photo represents the road I have come across while in Kansas. It represents that it is time to move on to other things in life and as much as I enjoy doing photography, it does not make any sense to continue on with a hobby that no one enjoys. This will be my final posting. Farewell to all.’ 

I wrote that when I was in my deepest depression, however, I am doing much better and I am back behind the lens. I just cannot give up photography.”

    Never give up. Sometimes, the camera is my best friend. Behind the lens, I am really me. So never give up this thing you love.
