Wow Alan! Eli is absolutely beautiful as is your wife. You guys really seem to have this whole parenthood thing down pat. I'm very impressed.
I guess when baby needs a new pair of shoes dad needs to find summer employment... But with a new baby, Malachi with a great name, dad needs to pull out the D700 and put it to work. Looking forward to more photos from your lovely family Alan.
Curtis, the D700 and 50/1.2 have been hard at work for awhile as my Pentax 67 was laid up for awhile after the mirror flew off. It's back, but I expect the Nikon to do most of the heavy lifting with the 50 and 105 and occasionally an AF 28 may find it's way onto the camera. I'll be trying to drop by from time to time. I wouldn't go so far to say that we've figured out parenting yet though... we still have much to learn!
Congrats on the new baby Huddy!! No better subject for taking pictures than a new addition to the family. May your baby enjoy a long prosperous and happy life!!
Thank you very much Tom. I have the same hopes for him and no desire to point the camera elsewhere.
Sayings like that rub off on you after many years here.
I can't imagine having a child 2 years out of college. My wife and I waited 5 years after getting married. I was 33 years old when our first child hit! She would have been happy earlier, but not me. I needed to grow a bit more.
Other than my parents, most of our family tends to start having children by 21-22 so I guess it is quite the norm for us! We are hoping to have as many more as God will bless us with, as we do love children!
Alan, huge congrats. Beautiful family you've got going.
Dylan, many thanks!
Alan - I must say that is one of the best candid shots I've seen in quite a while. She's laughing and not looking a the camera while he's got the greatest smile and is looking at the camera.
Obviously you know when to trip the shutter . . .
John thank you very much! I got a lot better in my discipline of waiting for the so called 'decisive moment' by shooting a Leica, and I like to think that it carried over a bit now that I'm primarily shooting the D700 again. Too bad a D700 doesn't have the M6TTL's lack of vibration. Being able to shoot at 1/8 and 1/15 without VR and still get sharp shots spoiled me.
I don't have a Christian name. I'm Chin, and I sometimes get mixed up with Chuong. Doesn't bother me one bit
Thank you Chin!
