This photo means a lot to me, it represents exactly how I felt while taking it.
For me the photo explains a bit how I experience my depression,
It felt like I was drowning and everyone else around me could just breathe.

And like the waves in water, it always comes back.

But for me the photo also gives me strength, because I know the duck came back up again.
