Shadows Hanging Over Me

My project is based on a personal journey over the last twelve months, following a traumatic ankle injury in February of 2020.  A journey that has forced me to explore the loss of my freedom, dependency on others, and dark emotions.  The lyrics from a verse in the song Yesterday, by the Beatles, struck a chord with me, and I have used that as a prompt for this project.

I’m not half the man I used to be
There’s a shadow hanging over me
Oh, yesterday came suddenly

I have chosen eight words/phrases to portray emotions that have consumed my brain the last year.  All images incorporate shadows, were shot on my iPhone 11, and were edited in Lightroom mobile.

Broken - Long Journey - Drowning - Trapped  - In a Fog - Starting Over - Reaching For Light - Glimmer of Hope
