I'll have to catch up tomorrow. I really need to go to bed, but I've spent much of the day and evening processing photos from yesterday and need to post one photo before turning it.
As I mentioned there were two babies present, one a bit over two months old and one ten days old. Here is a photo of the youngster on his father's lap... Shot with the 85 f/1.4 AI-s at f/2 in manual mode because of the poor lighting. Post processing was a challenge for that reason as well.
Mother and dad are researchers in the medical field, both with Ph.D. degrees, both working at UC San Francisco and both from Finland. They told the story yesterday about the birth of their child. Husband and wife share an interest in rock climbing and are in extremely good physical condition. When Maikki began having contractions, Ville, her husband was at the laboratory where there is lousy cell phone service and terrible land line service. Eventually she reached him and he rushed home. They proceeded to WALK the five hundred yards to the birthing center where she had the baby. When it was time to leave the hospital, they were told they could not be discharged until they produced a car seat for the baby. The fact they'd walked to the hospital and intended to walk home was beside the point. Ville had to walk home and bring the car seat back before they would release mother and child... who then walked home as Ville carried the car seat.
I'll share more photos from the day, but not until I've caught up with what I missed over the last two days. Now to bed!
CGrindahl, Great heart warming story, with the perfect photographic memory to boot! You've gotta love those hospital staff, for there caring, and awesome work they do! Of course I have extreme love for all things UC San Francisco, and its branches during my family's ordeal, so I am obviously going to be biased! I must say congratulations to these fine parents, and thank them for their contributions to society! Thanks again, for your time, and sharing their fantastic memories!
