Light and Dark

Bipolar disease is often called light and dark. Which intrigues me in this image. The green leaves are usually perceived dark on light background, not this shot of light and green. Taken at the Portland Japanese Garden, case you asked.


  1. I am wondering why you reference bipolar disease, with this post. I sure hope you or someone close to you, does not suffer. It is truly horrible. Hopefully, the sufferer is undergoing treatment.

    The Portland Japanese Garden looks beautiful.

    Take care,

  2. Hi Jennifer,
    I don't have anyone close to me with the disease, but when I was searching for the terms "light and dark" I was surprised to learn that it is used to describe bipolar disease. And I am aware that it is a difficult and drastic illness. It changes everyone who knows the person carrying it as well. I think that when I work and make images, that they can often be interpreted in various ways, just as "light and dark" is used here. Thanks for your thoughts.
