I learned last week that this image is going to be included in the Plus One Collection iii. The irony, of course, was that this image was taken over a year ago as we were unpacking our household goods in Virginia. Meanwhile here were are again, buried in boxes, this time unpacking in Alaska.
This is the third year of this amazing collection of images put out by the Photographers for Good foundation, but my first time submitting an image for possible inclusion. I was too nervous to submit any images the last two years and am completely honored that my image made the cut.
The Plus One Collection is always a beautiful book of images but more importantly, it highlights the spirit of community that I've so enjoyed on Google Plus. The Plus One Collection iii will benefit Eliza O'Neill. Eliza is the same age as my Dylan, but because of a degenerative genetic disease called Sanfilippo syndome, may not live into her teens. If she doesn’t get the treatment she needs, she will lose the ability to speak within 6 months and suffer irreversible brain damage within a year and a half.
