Been away, became a father! Say welcome to Adam!
Posted By: the swede, 08-01-2010, 08:55 PM

Been away for about a month, became a father on the 4th of July!
It was a great and uniqe experience to be with my wife in the hospital standing by her side in labour, and to witness the amazing work she did for 10 hours still maks my eyes tear up.

So the camera has been turned Off for a few weeks and i've been changing dipers and helping out at home.

Will be back posting pictures now though....between the dipers

So these were taken at the hospital. I wanted tem to be bright and clean with minimal PP. Most taken with the A-50, only last one with 16-45 and flash.

Congrats. But 10 hours... my wife would have used the camera strap around my neck for putting her through that (and I don't mean to hang the camera off, the other sort of hanging)

Enjoy fatherhood, there is nothing quite like it, and plenty of photo ops.
