Few people return — frequently — to their former workplaces following retirement. Barry Fleisher, MD, is one of those unusual few. He's a common sight at the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford construction site, because it provides him an opportunity to hone his skills —and not his skills as a neonatologist.
Instead of caring for teeny babies, Fleisher now snaps beautiful photographs, including the shot of the workers above, which was recognized as a winner in Engineering News-Record's 2016 Year in Construction Photo Contest.
As Fleisher recently explained in a piece on the Healthier, Happy Lives:
The construction at LPCH has given me a chance to bring together my family history in the construction business, ties to Packard Children’s, and enthusiasm for photography... The staff, contractors and workers have made me feel welcome at the expansion site, which is an exciting place to be with a beauty of its own – which I’ve tried to capture.
