Saturday afternoon in bed...

Yesterday, I spent the whole day getting a new Flickr account and blog set up for the participants in the "Lives Worth Sharing" photography project, and today, FundaciĆ³n Esperanza Viva (Living Hope Foundation) in Bucaramanga, Colombia, posted their first photographs taken by child cancer patients with the camera they were selected to receive. This photograph, titled "Saturday Afternoon in Bed" was taken by a young patient on a Saturday afternoon.... I was struck by the contrast between the serious reality of terminal illness and the apparent carefree coloring we hope for and expect during childhood years. You can see more pictures from the project at
Also, you can visit the Spanish language blog (I'll have the English one up soon) for the project at:
