Title: Up All Night (at Children's Hospital of Michigan)

— Lately, here in the suburbs of Metropolitan Detroit, the temperatures outdoors have been below fre-e-e-zing and it's been quite windy. Despite Old Man Winter, I decided to brave the elements and photograph what I feel is one of the most architecturally interesting and colorful buildings I've ever seen - The Children's Hospital of Michigan in Troy, MI.

I felt the Christmas lights in the trees added to the composition, and lead the viewer's eye into the frame from the bottom left.

And there in the center of the frame is the single tree, alone, at night wishing it had lights of it's own on it's branches to sparkle.

It's there in that instant, I hope the viewer looks up into the windows of the hospital and thinks of the many children spending tonight, like the tree feeling alone, wishing they had a healthy life of their own so they too could sparkle.
