Kiddo in the Sanitorium circa 1919.. (Hand Coloured Print obviously....)

James was horribly ill with unspecified Fever for about 4 days. He was absolutely somewhere else for all that time. So quiet it was. I have never forgotten it. Like a strange dream.

It was summer so I made a bed for him outdoors.

      No edit! Even better! THIS is why people are drawn to the apps that make photos look 'old'. How much more interesting is this from the exact photo taken today with new film and lens?!

      You did a beautiful job of editing on this shot. It's so hard when kids are sick, parenting really kicks in to do what you can and it never seems enough.

      Very evocative post...it has to be the most helpless feeling in the world. Great idea to be outside when poorly - it shows so much tenderness from you.
