The Dark Days


Photo taken by contributor Michael Ross, a 57-year-old man from Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Michael has struggled with anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder for most of his life. Photography helps him deal with the daily struggles, but sometimes becomes a battle of perfectionism.

About this photo: “I took this photo on a very dark day by a lake last year, and looking back on it now I see that it was nothing more than clouds that eventually passed just like my depression.”
