Photo taken by contributor Michelle who has battled Recurrent Major Depression for the past few years. For a long time she was struggling and didn’t know what was wrong with her, but eventually she was diagnosed, surprisingly by her gynecologist. Michelle writes, blogs and does photography as therapy. She has found that doing these things is self-settling and helps her manage depression much better.
About this photo: “When I took this picture it reminded me of the song ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ by Simon & Garfunkel.
‘When you’re weary
When tears are in your eyes
I will dry them all’
It’s a song which resonates with me and often plays in my mind….this is my picture which goes with it. I thought having the bridge in Black and White makes a striking effect.“
