*Surrender* I was just completing this image yesterday evening when I was overwhelmed by an excruciating abdominal pain. After medication and tests, thankfully it was nothing serious. One thing that resulted from it was this: the physical pain pierced its way through the darkness – and it put a lot of things in perspective. I am left with a feeling of relief and gratefulness. And thus, my edit of the image was altered. Life throws us a lot of curve balls. When you live with The Black Dog around the corner, it’s always important to absolutely focus on the little things that are good so that when the time comes, and you feel overwhelmed, you still have the ability to put one heavy leaden foot in front of the other – even if you have to drag that damn foot. So, sometimes the fight is about surrendering to some facts, simply to accept. When you do, you fight stronger. #visualartdiary_michmutters #australia #fineartphotography #art ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ #project_uno #artists_magazine #art_empire #lovesedits #illmatic_features #sombresociety #rsa_bnw #bnw_life #bnw_awards #the_bestbw #ir_bnw #rustlord_bnw #bnw_demand #unopix_bnw #flair_bw #rsa_mystery #rsa_dark #crazycoolselfie #tv_soul #jj_humanedge #jj_blackwhite #stackablesapp #afterlight #portrait #ipad
