Weekly Photo Challenge: Let There Be Light

Let There Be Light

>>:::<<
bright sources
illuminating a path
in multiple ways
>>:::<<

Different light sources exist in this photo.  Artificial light illuminates from the ceiling and reflects off the metal elevator doors, and natural light coming through large windows to the left adds brightness to the inside of the building.

This is the inside of the cancer hospital where we spend a lot of time for my mother’s cancer treatments, procedures and tests.  It certainly doesn’t look or feel like a hospital, but that was the intended design – to make the patient and family feel like they were NOT in a hospital.  Even the individual patient rooms give the feeling like you are in a nice hotel room, only with a hospital bed.

I interpret “Let There Be Light” in two different ways for this posting.  First, providing light inside of the building, and second, hoping that the visits here will help provide bright light for us at the end of the tunnel with my mother’s cancer journey.  There is nothing significantly new since the last posting.  We are continuing her regular aggressive treatments and waiting to see what the next scans and tests will tell us.

  1. A truly beautiful setting for the sufferers of the big c to be treated… Linda has had 3 different cancers and all three have been treated at different hospitals, none however look as lovely as this one…

    • Aesthetics really do make a difference, and I think it is important for the patient as well as the family. Everyone who visited my mother in the hospital commented on how nice the hospital and her room was.
      Your wife has been through so much. I hope she is cancer free and in good health. Thank you so much for your kind words, Bulldog!

  2. soothing architecture, indeed!

  3. Oh I love this! I love it for the photographic skills you have but also for the much deeper meaning it conveys too. I wish your mum all the best with her treatments which must be very difficult to cope with and I wish you all the best too in your journey with her. I think about you often. Xx

    • Thank you very much, David! I appreciate your kind words. I do find this interior quite interesting. I took a series of photos of this hospital with my iPhone while I was waiting for my mother to come out of one of her surgeries here.

  4. My dear FM, I wish you an “illuminating path” in every way. May the light pour in and wash away the illness, completely! Beautiful photo for the challenge and for everything it symbolizes. My best thoughts and wishes – always! :-)

  5. Lovely take on this soothing architecture, a place of journeys enfolded in light. I appreciate it is a difficult journey and I wish you, your family, especially your mother well in the process.

  8. Such an excellent photograph, and prayers and healing sent for your mom. I know it must be a difficult time for you and your family, but as your picture shows – there is always light in the shadows. XO

  9. Thank you very much, Vicki! It’s amazing how attention to details like this can make a difference in just how the patients and family feel. This hospital really does consider both – patient and family.

Thanks so much for your comments!
