I have suspended my “One Photograph a Day” today for a special reason. The photograph above was taken by a friend of mine on one of his trips to Palestine whilst creating a photo documentary. He was following the work of the lady in the shot amongst the Palestinian refugees. It was one of his favourite shots, and today it is posted as a tribute to Ron Coello, who took the shot almost exactly four years ago to the day.

Very tragically he has been taken from us before his time. I met him when he was running one of his photography courses and I have Ron to thank for my increased interest in photography. Forever in my heart.
