p.1 #1 · #503 A Close Look


How ironic that the topic of "The Hospital" should come up on this, the last day of work before a week out of town for my wife, who spends half her waking (and working) hours in the hospital...so, with six hours notice I approached her about access...

Apparently the ubiquitous nursery with the big windows, where anyone can go stand among the nervous and exhausted new parents and gaze at the newborns (and take pictures) in their little clear-sided bassinets hardly exists anymore; there is one, but the babies are almost always in the rooms with their mothers, as they were this morning...so, scratch the first idea...

Then, even as the spouse of a staff physician, I can't just wander through the public areas taking seemingly random photographs of empty wheelchairs, gurneys, and hallways; I have to apply through the PR and security departments, whose approval takes more than the single afternoon at my disposal...and there went the second idea...

Not one to settle for a shot of poop-yellow brick facades, or of the tiny smokers' area in the alley courtyard, and, having been escorted by security guards away from the emergency room entrance, I finally just gained access to one of my wife's examination rooms, where the colposcope resides...

A colposcope is this super-powered set of close-focussing binoculars built onto a stand that allows a medical tech to see hugely enlarged views of...various organs (my wife is a obstetrician/gynecologist, if that helps...), and this one has a little Canon T2i attached; I've used it before to make photos of several fun things, like feathers, the insect parts in an old amber necklace, and the like...anyway, its a really cool piece of expensive equipment.

And any female photographer out there will recognize the stirrups...

So, my entry this week...a juxtaposition of photography and medicine...

(The story is better than the photo! )

Thank you for your consideration, and y'all have a good week (we're going camping in the Smokies )
Jerry

Love the image and association that goes with it.

I need to get back into the weekly comps, although my camera is in A&E itself after a small incident

I was going to schedule some elective surgery but realized I have had my tonsils, adenoids, appendix and gall bladder already removed. Perhaps a little nip tuck? Would that be to extreem for a WA?
