Fight or flight

Nikon D750, Sigma 35mm f/1.4

Fight or flight: On the outside you look ok, maybe even calm. And on the inside is the opposite—terror, chaos, anxiety, the unspeakable, panic, fear, disturbing sensations and more…and it all makes sense. You do what you can, appreciate your surroundings and what you notice in creation. The beauty of this flying flock just above the trees on a background of clouds helps provide some peace and calming as you try to ground yourself in this present moment.

Another of many images I’ve taken from the passenger seat on a drive home from one of my neurofeedback appointments. I never know how these images will turn out as we’re driving down one of the highways or the interstate we travel. This process of making photos of my surroundings really is helpful and calming for me.

I decided to share some of the photos and writing I’ve shared over on my Flickr account. If you’re interested in seeing more of those images you can check them out here.
