Founder's Gallery

While Dave was in Nicaragua he took 1,600 photos to capture the life of the people who live there. As part of a project for medical school he picked his favorite 20, edited them, printed them, framed them, and put them up in the Founder's Gallery at Shands Hospital this past Monday and Tuesday. The above picture is one of my favorites because of the vibrant colors and how adorable this little girl is - full of life! Tons of people walked through the gallery and were very impressed with his artsy side. On Monday afternoon he got a call from the Dean of the College of Medicine asking if David could give him a special tour of the photos and if David would mind being interviewed by a few local magazines. Of course, David was thrilled. This small project for medical school has turned into a major event. The pictures are amazing! He uploaded the pictures onto his website. Yes, he has a photography web site if I haven't mentioned that before - a side of him I bet you never knew. :) Here he is standing in the middle of the gallery. I am such a proud little wife. :)

Check out his website for more incredible photos ...
