Switch Off

Switch Off

This image was one of those that just flashed into my mind one day and I had to make it because I couldn’t stop thinking about it.

For me it represents those tough days of depression or anxiety where you’re stuck in negative thought cycles and wish you could step outside of your head for a breather. It’s also for those nights where you’re awake at 4:00am and wish you could turn off and go back to sleep.

I have re-discovered a few things:

– How much I love conceptual self portraits.

–  My bike which has been on a permanent sleep over at my in-laws for the last year (thank you for looking after it!)

Something I love about photography is how much you can take a prop or a concept and just make so much from it. Ugh, I love it. I’m going to do MORE!

I also snuck in some general portraits while the light was still pretty awesome.
