Photography Rebuilding My Sanity

I give a lot of thought to what I do and that's no different to my photography , I'll make no bones about it I have a phenomenal eye by that I mean my photographic eye .



I'm photograghing my way to sanity and I'm really not sure that I'll ever be sane so I'm just going to have to keep taking photographs , photograghpy has really kept me going particularly in my darkest of days .


I find photography is not lonely at all but instead I find it empowering and all encapsulating. I love to capture the moments and look back on them mostly fondly and sometimes painful but a continuing therapy none the less . Whilst I prefer bluebird skies I'm really adaptable to any weather situation as there is a myriad of opportunities with the colours that are thrown up.


Photography as a thererapy I find very satisfying as I can say " I took that picture " the sense of accomplishment is second to none , I don't take pictures for the admiration I get at times it's purely in a sense a somewhat selfish reason sometimes . 

I enjoy showing my photography off in my blog and the community that I'm part of , and I'm always learning new skills. If you 'be thought there's no way I can take pictures I really urge you to try and with digital photography you can delete the image if you don't like it .

I'm always on the look out for pictures to take and it really gets me out into the fresh air and it's helping me exercise.


Photography makes me want to get out and for a person with depression and anxiety that really is monumental. I can't struggle to talk in social situations I struggle to get my voice across , I struggle to be heard. But as soon as I put my photography on line then I spark conversation and I get back people talking .

  1. I love this post Claire, your photography is stunning. I feel the same about taking photos as well, it makes me feel better and it makes me notice the beauty in the wonderful things that are around me.
