Dryer lint dancing in the light

Nikon D750, Sigma 35mm f/1.4

When one of my children emptied the dryer lint I was so fascinated by the lint particles as I saw them floating through the air highlighted by the sunlight, quickly got my camera and tried to see if I could capture the lint dust in the air. It was a helpful process to really notice my surroundings and appreciate the beauty as I was about to walk out the door and leave for a neurofeedback appointment which can be challenging for me. Looking at this image helps me to remember that moment.

Half & half

Sometimes a variety of emotions can be experienced at the same time. There is room for multiple feelings at once. Sometimes there can be feelings that feel conflicted with one another and that’s ok, they’re all valid.

Birds on a wire

Just a quick shot I took from the passenger seat on the way to a neurofeedback appointment as my husband was driving us down the highway. Watching the scenery and taking pictures while in the car can be a helpful way for me to cope. It can be challenging and I see that as part of the process.

Reflection

Standing under the bridge—which was busy with traffic—along the Iowa River at Terry Trueblood Recreation Area. Such a beautiful area to enjoy.

Kids were here

One day at lunch my son had some chips and salsa. I was amused to see that he used part of a tortilla chip as a spoon rest for his salsa covered spoon. I was surprised he put that much thought and effort into keeping the table clean…and he didn’t even have to wash his spoon rest, he could just eat it!

. . . a l o n e . . . (one week later)

Nikon D750, Sigma 35mm f/1.4

Today I just realized I took this picture exactly one week after the previous image—the same tree, different clouds, and leaves a different color, while riding in the car to the another neurofeedback appointment.

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, reminds me of how I often feel as a result of experiencing devastating traumas and severe mental health struggles. And somehow it feels a little helpful to make an image like this.

Kansas Turnpike bridge + dirty car windows

Nikon D750, Sigma 35mm f/1.4

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 find that often it’s a helpful way for me to cope and have something to focus on. And I love trying to capture the beautiful golden sunset light when I have the opportunity.

Evening shadow

This branch of our rose bush and its shadow caught my eye one evening at sunset as I was enjoying the beautiful light around our home.
