    #4 :rofl:
    He wanted to get inside the box/toy when he saw it he could fit. And Katrina lifted up the box/toy so he could crawl under it...
    I have an image with my wife holding up the box/toy and Nicks legs still outside the box/toy...

    #5 :smile:
    His Dr was asking us general health questions, and Katrina was going through some great reactions....It was his wellness check-up... nothing serious :tongue:

    Great series, Peter. I enjoyed seeing the day unfold.

    As an aside, this series shows how versatile the 40mm equivalent angle of view can be - some of these look like they were taken with a wide angle, and others look like they were taken with a short tele.

    I'll add my thanks Peter. Thought a visit to the doctor can be stressful, I'm glad that this visit wasn't about something serious or ominous. I love your son's reactions in #3 and #4.

    Amin's observations about the versatility of the 40mm equivalent is a good one. This is one of the reasons I don't generally have an issue with a high quality fixed lens.

    Great shots, 3 and 4 my faves. I hate hospitals dont think I would have been able to hold camera still in there lol. The 20mm sure is a great little prime.

    Well, normally, a hospital visit is for serious stuff, and cameras would not be a wise option...
    But, All but one Dr. is located in this Children's Hospital.. So his basic check ups are here for the most part. It makes it easy on us :thumbup:

    It's all in the subject to camera distance and f/stop in combination..... we create the perspective
    I knew with limiting my ISO to 200, the camera would pick larger f/stops (f/1.7-f/2.8). And, I already know, that when you close to the subject, the DOF is very short, so even short FL could have limited DOF.
    #4... I wish the AF locked on his face though,
    #5... I had the Swing out LCD in use in my lap... The G2 with a touch LCD for the AF point.. would have been a good thing. I had push the Shutter button 1/2 down a few times for it lock on the Dr.
    #6... was my only capture... got lucky on this one I use the 23 point AF... 95% of the time it works just fine. :drinks:

    Peter,
    Thanks for sharing those with us and I'm glad to hear that things were good with Nick's health.

    Your shots seem to have a distinctive quality about them that immediately identifies you as the photographer, you've obviously got a way of setting up the camera or processing your images that no one else seems to have cottoned onto.
