The Last Pill

The Last Pill

  • The Last Pill

This was the last pill. I have already taken it. Some of why I was taking this pill is discussed here, and something of how those events affected me can be read here. But it is because I have come through this trial, at long last, with success that I am posting this series. The pill itself is gone, and I felt in taking this last half dose of Mirtazapine that I was ending a chapter.

  • Fly No More

This series of dead flies is a strange one. There were simply four windows that I passed by for over a year, every Wednesday, up the two flights of stairs to the psychiatric clinic. And it never failed that these windows became the deadly trap of so many of these six legged creatures. There was some odd symbolism in this. There was always a new fly here and there, indicating a regular effort to clean these double paned windows from debris. I’ve taken many such images over the last year and a half, but on my very last visit, to determine that I would end my medication (and take the last pill) — on that one day, all four windows contained flies. This had never happened before. And so I took images of each as a symbolic ending of an age. I leave the metaphor uninterpreted, for your own considerations.

  • About The Editing

I recently acquired an iPhone 4s from a colleague. In fact it was given to me, with much appreciation. I wanted one only to gain access to a number of apps found only on the iOS platform. This series is a combination of editing using both Android and iOS apps. I used Photo Editor for cropping, image distortion and skewing, and finally for preparation for the Web and exif data (see my tutorial on how to do that). On iOS, I used a personal Mextures formula I call “chiaroscuro”, which is a monochrome combination of the Tesla and Window Wash filters, both layered in soft light.
