“Darkness & Depression”
I'm going to be really real right now - my son, my constant companion as a single mom for 14 years, leaves for college this week and I'm not handling it well. I know that I'm supposed to be happy and it's a new stage and my husband (for the last 4 years) and I get more time together - but this photo is how I am feeling right now. I have 5 step-children (also all grown) and I have step-grandchildren, some local and some distant and I enjoy them all, but my flesh and blood growing up and going off is killing me at the moment. Maybe because he's been my sidekick or maybe even because now the house is truly empty of all kids. So this was me Tuesday night as I contemplate Saturday. So "night photography" just gave me a dark outlet for my mood.
