Somedays, I suffer almost crippling anxiety attacks where I just want to flee a situation. I’m never truly prepared when that happens, but when it does I need some sort of exit immediately. Perhaps a job, a relationship, or an uncomfortable situation. I panic and I literally have to talk to myself to calm down, to breathe deep, to get a drink of water.
Then I’ll look up. Literally or figuratively, and I realize that life is not to be taken so seriously. Sometimes this helps. Sometimes not.
Life’s “exit” comes soon enough. I’m trying to learn to live my life a day at a time… to be in the moment more… and again… to always look up and breathe.
I like this shot because I’m fairly certain that of all the photography thats done at Longwood, that this one is a first. Though I enjoy shooting the beautiful flowers and gardens immensely, I also make it a point to focus on things that most people would miss. Again, I hope I succeeded on that here.
