Photography – Nowhere To Go But Up
Believe it or not, working and living on a ski resort isn’t always as consistently glamorous as one might think. Akin to the lives of regular folk who decided to maintain residency within areas of reasonable climate, we ski resort-ers also occasionally fall victim to the mundanities that the “average” lifestyle may entail. An especially tiresome few days at work followed by a lack of food in the cupboard due to not having been shopping recently thanks to the almost non-existent local public transport system can dampen the moods of even the most avid snow fan.
Some of you may have followed my writings in the past wherein I openly discussed my on-going bouts with depression (which you can read about here) – and whilst such a significant change in living arrangements and lifestyle may have a notably positive impact on one’s mental health, it isn’t a magic spell which completely eradicates all of life’s struggles.
One of the main reasons I decided to move to Canada was to further pursue my passion for photography. Photography is also one of my healthier go-to coping mechanisms when I’m feeling particularly off-track; and on days when it feels like everything is completely above and beyond me, a simple snippet of a lovely landscape can help put life into perspective.
