. . . a l o n e . . .

I took this picture while riding in the car about 70 miles per hour down the highway (my husband was driving) on the way to a recent neurofeedback appointment. Sometimes I bring my camera and see what I can capture as a way to cope with my severe mental health struggles. This tree, all alone,Continue reading “. . . a l o n e . . .”

Kansas Turnpike bridge + dirty car windows

Just a quick shot I took as my husband was driving 75+ miles per hour down the Kansas Turnpike a few months ago. Taking photos while riding in the car is quite an interesting practice—you never know what you’ll get or how an image might turn out as you’re moving down the road. I findContinue reading “Kansas Turnpike bridge + dirty car windows”

Evening shadow

Rainy day—from the passenger seat

A motion blur shot I took as my husband drove me to a neurofeedback appointment on a rainy day at the end of October.

Keep growing

For a few weeks I watched these branches of the rose bush as they grew taller and taller, mentally cheering them on, and gaining encouragement from them to try to do the same myself and keep growing. I decided to share some of the photos and writing I’ve shared over on my Flickr account. IfContinue reading “Keep growing”

Dandelion seeds on my sleeve

So intent on what I was photographing (probably dandelions) that as I knelt in the grass I ended up with some dandelion seeds on my sleeve. And I was thankful to notice how the golden sunset light made them shine. I decided to share some of the photos and writing I’ve shared over on myContinue reading “Dandelion seeds on my sleeve”
