Ben Wilson: A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

Today's "featured type-1 diabetic" is Ben Wilson, son of Robin Carey of Glendale.  Ben has been diabetic for exactly half of his life, diagnosed in 1997, when he was only fourteen.

There's a lot to say about Ben:  my family knows him as a kind, empathetic, funny young man; and his mom calls him "big-hearted."

I'm going to stick to showing you a few pictures Ben has taken recently, since he's a talent photographer.  And I will post a story about him, in detail, probably tomorrow.

His pictures speak for him and show his whimsical nature:

The photographer himself.

Tree in black and white.
Definitely a dangersous crossing.

Night light.

Shadow on water.
