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 call this photo Learning to Fly. I took it at a local airport that teaches people to learn to fly. I think many of us forget that there was a time when anything seemed possible.
For me it’s easy to focus on all the things I can’t do, the things I am afraid to do, and with my own self imposed limitations I create my own small world, my own prison.
I want to relearn that in reality, there is really nothing to lose, and that the sky’s the limit.”
