52 Pick up challenge: In Silhouette

I posted this photo previously in March on the Broken Light Collective site as a post called “Beautiful Darkness”. I decided to post it again on my own site today, because like my previous post, I am hoping, now, to come out of the dark.

The theme for this week’s 52 Pick Up at Sherene’s blog “Print-sense Photography and Design” is “In Silhouette”. I originally sent this to Broken Light Collective, a site devoted to showcasing work by people affected by mental illness, when I first was given a “diagnosis” of Cyclothymia. I was confused and poorly and troubled, and I likened this picture to the darkness that seemed to be descending on me. But the more important aspect of this picture is the light. The light is my son – and, despite everything, he makes the darkness beautiful.
