Black & White Sunday: Light

I am joining Paula’s Black & White Sunday: Light with a lot on my plate but these challenges give me a little space to breath. My Bride is having a problem with her inner ear and it causing problems with her clinical participation. As a nursing student you do not get to use the automated blood pressure machine when checking a patients BP. She went to and ENT specialist and he has her on several medication to try and clear it up. One is a medicine that she does not do well on but there is no reliable substitute. I looked at this challenge and thought she has come so far I hate her struggle here at the time the light at the end of the tunnel is a light, not a train. Keep her, if you will, in your thoughts and prayers as we together move forward  battered and bruised.

The first B&W was taking one late night two years or so ago and was originally shot in color.This was around the time My Bride started taking the first courses needed to getting admitted to RN school. She was still working at the time and took Anatomy and Physiology 101 online.We had just finished her labs and turned in her home work and needed to decompress a little. When I say we I mean I was her lab monkey partner and it was a wild ride for both of us. I set my old trusty Canon PowerShot S3 is on a mini-tripod played with the settings till I got this shot: All the lights are lit on the stop lights.

That should be “Photography”

The second is the marque of the State Theater in our home town. I like this shot and I hope you do too.

I am a 59 year old guy who is asking questions about life like "what does it all mean?" and " how come hair will not grow on my head but grows real fast on my ears and back?" you know the deep stuff. I believe in Jesus Christ and that He died for all. The rest I am still working on.

  1. I’m so sorry for your wife, John. I gathered from your post that there is no cure, just some medicine that is not really helping. Is it making her dizzy? Can she change job? I am sorry if I am asking too much, and yes, I will pray and send my positive thoughts. I know how frustrating it is to have an illness that seems to have no end. I love both of your photos, and I hope you won’t be disappointed which I chose as my favorite. Thank you, John.

    1. She is still in nursing school and once she done the hearing will not be an issue but for now it is. The course is a tough one and since there is no other medicine that will help her she is stuck taking one that has negative effects. She needs sleep and the medicine doesn’t allow her to sleep well.Also the effects do not quit once she is done so it will effect her for about 2 1/2 weeks, which is a lifetime for a nursing student.
      She is better today and we appreciate your prayers and positive thoughts. i have you and your challenge up high on my list so you know. Peace~John
