i have been through all the child abuse stuff :/ im 17 now, im in a good place now, with dad but i still get really unhappy (i dont tell him that) but if i can, ill go out and take photos, i seem to be quite good at it, all my friends say, and i like the photos. its rewarding to get some good results, specially with a $150AUS camera that isnt all that good ive include a few of my shots, and said if they've been edited.

the beauty
by: michelle f

WE have to look deeper in ourselves,to project what we want because we held those feelings in for so long,that any beauty we see in our lives we should dwell on I will stop in the road to let a deer cross the road and when it turns and looks at me and just slowly walks away I say it trusted me it sees me and it is beautiful.But your pictures are soooo brillant and beautiful to look at I thank you for putting them here to let me see today just in cause I only saw ugly today.I mean dont stop finding it,because it is there all around us,we just have to open our eyes to see it.

Please Oh Please Be gentle and kind to yourself

Photography by it's self will no bring you total healing so I would suggest you seek out some form of counselling: It will do you a world of good: Also try having a healthy mind in a healthy body by taking part with your own age group and friends in sporting and cultural activities: yes a photography liked minded group: You are young and active so join a team and make real friends for life by playing with team mates: I know you minght think me a bit daft suggesting that to you who are into photography: I honestly believe it would be a good second choice: But have a true friend or two to value and respect you for all you went through and especially being so positive about it all now: Stay safe: be safe: get professional help too should you feel the need of it Your photo's are exquisite I love nature so keep out and about taking them:
