ABC Wednesday: C is for Chapel Hill

C is for Chapel Hill.

C is for Cancer.
C is for the Carolina.
C is for the Cancer Hospital at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill which is where all these shots were taken.
Clearly these are spring shots not browning summer ones. Click for the home of ABC Wednesday.

I don't like cancer either Ann, but the pictures of the hospital are very good and the reflections are great.

C is for Carver, too.
I see reflections in the first photo, too.
If people need to be hospitalized for cancer, this looks like it might be a nice place for it.

I don't like hospitals or cancer and hope you can stay for away from both!

Thanks to everyone for their comments. For the record, I don't like cancer either but since I was treated and continue to be followed at UNC for cancer (no active disease at this point), I have a lot of photographs of their facility. As a matter of fact when going for scans or appointments I've pretended that I'm really there for a photo shoot and since during the time I've been seen there (starting in 2005) they have built a new cancer hospital, it's been fun photographing it from start to finish as well as photographing the garden being put in. I see a lot of different doctors for side effects I've had since my lymph node dissection so I don't do this just at UNC. At every doctor I see I have a collection of photographs either at their offices (usually outside) or at places I go on the way home to take photographs. I could probably do the whole alphabet just with my too many doctors, ha. Cheers, Carver

I love the work of cancer centers. too many people I know, including my father and my brother-in-law (at 41) died of it.

Very well thought of the letter C. And yes the hospital looks new but don't like the cancer thing. ^_^

"I've pretended that I'm really there for a photo shoot"... What a creative way to experience hospital visits, Carver! Super C post of the Cancer Hospital. Looks like a competent place.
