Photo Sessions For A Good Cause

This is Chris. He's 16 years old. Chris is my cousin's son, and he has become quite familiar with doctors & hospitals since he was born. Here's a little quote from his mom, to give you an idea of the kind of guy he is: "It really amazes me how he takes the thought of having open heart surgery in stride.

But 3 months ago I finally joined one that a few Facebook friends (and former schoolmates) had started. Challenge: Food   For this one they had a different theme every day.  This one was "Food".   (I was beginning to like this challenge thing) Challenge: Close up  It was only a 30-day challenge...I figured I could handle that.  Challenge: Water  The challenge ended up being a fantastic experience for me.
