Photo Essay

When depression meets a stranger in London

Eat. Pray. Survive.

I travel to London quite often. At least once a year. Alone. And mostly in the winter time. Two years ago I was in a really bad mood. An awful rainy weather, dark gloomy streets and mad crowd surrounding me... all that amplified my depression.

As always I've been carrying my camera, but this time I had no idea what for. I took plenty of photos, but I knew they're really bad before I released the shutter.

For the next 2 years I didn't even look at these photos. Now I'm glad I didn't delete the entire set at once. After some time I've found them quite interesting. Enough to share the selected photos with you.

It's really hard to find a single straight frame. Most of them are underexposed. Plus accidental compositions. And that's why I like them now so much - they all express my state of mind.

And yes, I'm still depressed. But I think I like that poison.
