Photo taken by Luis Rosado, a Floor Supervisor and Lighting Technician of a film equipment rental house. He has been suffering from anxiety and depression for over 30 years, and has been sober for 4 years from an alcohol problem that lasted over 20 years. Photography has always been a wonderful outlet for him to capture and hold on to the brighter moments in his life.
About this photo: “This one is called “Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust.” Taken Summer of 2011 while walking on the beach with family. The cloudy windy day lent itself well to this photo. It reminds me that we all have a beginning and an end. It’s what we do with our lives that make the difference. My alcoholism led me to waste 20 years of my life. I sat by and wallowed about my lot in life for a good long time until treatment and therapy helped me to realize I do matter and still have a lot of great things to do. Everyone counts.”
