Babies "R" Us
I would like to welcome Kyle Aviles to the world. No, the new arrival is not mine but a close friend of my family. The stork landed on Saturday at 11:30am with a cute round face and pointy head.
Kyle is number 3 for their family. I can only imagine their kickstart back into infant preparedness. Formula, diapers, burping, and the never ending poop. All I can remember from my kids at this age was the constant flowing vanilla and chocolate swirl soft serve. Just like the machine at The Golden Corral Buffet with the sticky handle.
Kyle will appreciate his legacy lives on the internet. All I got at my birth was a Kodak Pocket Instamatic with the dynamic range of 110 film. This was followed by prints archived in a degrading glue contact sheet page. Oh, the memories!
I photographed Kyle's arrival with the Canon EOS 1D Mark IV with the Canon EF 35mm f/1.4 L lens. There is something dreamy about the 35mm lens. Maybe it is the ability to compose the shot with a wide angle of view with little depth of field. All I know is the pictures have dreamy bokeh.
