    Well, Fab, we'll just have to leave it at that, as it seems that you do not have the personal experience with parenthood and NICU's to understand my point, and I seem to be failing to sufficiently get my point across...sorry (effective communication requires both parties to be effective, and I have failed.)

    A photo of my three boys in their mom's arms. Their first Mother's Day, May 11, 1997. They are 6 weeks old (and for those with preemies and know about "adjusted age", their adjusted age was minus 5 weeks). They are about 4 pounds each (the middle guy was 4.5 lbs). Birth weights were around 2.75 lbs, dropping to 2.5 pounds soon after (weight loss is a common occurance). They left the NICU when their weight was about 5 pounds (about 3 weeks after the photo was taken).

    I did not take the photo -- I was working 800 miles away -- but it was on film (does not look like a flash was used). Either my sister or one of the nurses took the photo

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Nothing personal Vaughn, I just don't like my ass to be involved in a conversation where it didn't want to be involved

    I supposed so, that's the way Ralph Vaughan Williams and Sarah Vaughan are pronounced. If Vaughn is a surname, it is probably an alternative writing of the above.

    Vaughn -- Third generation first (given) name. Where it came from before then is not known by me. (that side of the family arrived in the Americas in the later 1600's from England)

    Von, that photo definitely stirs up some feelings. I have a 6 week old daughter who weighs around 10lb, maybe more. She looks alot different to your 3. I hope the continue to be happy and healthy fellows.

    A two pound baby sounds so soft, sensitive, cute and gentle. I suggest that you try less amount of lighting and if possible avoid flashes.

    May sound that way, but that is far from the reality of the situation. Think more mis-shapened, off-color, fragile, and helpless.

    Time for an update!

    Charlotte is doing well, but she's still in the hospital until she can put some weight on. Fingers crossed home soon.

    I'm starting to approach an acceptable result. The winning strategy so far is the Rollei with a close focus diopter, enlarged onto ilford ortho plus, contact printed back onto ortho and finally Pd printed.

    The biggest hiccup was when Charlotte needed a chest and abdomen x-ray. The incubators have a cleverly designed film holder built into the base which allows the hospital staff to roll in a portable x-ray machine and shoot straight through her cot. They roll in metal screens to protect the other babies and ask the parents to leave the room whilst a lead-clad operator does the business. When I left, I forgot my Rollei which was under my chair next to the incubator. When I processed it I found the numbers and circles from the paper backing were burnt into the film...

    I'll post a picture of my favourite print shortly.

    J.
