Drop of drepression

Is this too dark for you? Well maybe that's probably because you are experiencing the little season depression that some of us experience during the winter months. Well not exactly depressed but I'm not feeling very happy about the weather right now. Sometimes it's an excuse to get up late in the day. Anyway here is an image I think that expresses what I mean.

This fits the title perfectly. Very nicely done. I hope you will have reason to post something a little more upbeat soon!

i think there's somehting very calming about this image; i really like it!
I can relate...we are in an Arctic Blast at the moment that is making things miserable. I don't even want to go to the mailbox to retrieve my mail, heck I don't even want to go near my front door it's just sssso cccccold.

I like the feeling of this shot it has a sense of the mood.
Weldone bros! Just a drop of joy to tease a tired soul.
Is that like Dr. Dre pression? Depends where you are waking up, Jide. You wanna try it over here, in Oslo. I swear, after a week of this you won't be complaining anymore. I guess it's all relative though...lol! Cheer up ya miserable bugga!

I think quite a few have a little bit of SAD at this time of year. The shot is subtle, muted and expresses your sentiments I think.

My goodness, Alakija I must say you are the best. Catching a droplet of water, eloquent, simple but deep. Great shot
