Katie Rose Davis was born on May 13, 2008 at about 10PM at about 24.5 weeks gestation. She weighes 1 pound 14 ounces, and is in the NICU at California Pacific Medical Center. In the circumstances, she is doing very, very well.

The photo should, of course, have shown a rose for Katie. But it’s a Papaver from my garden that I photographed yesterday, smiling for the beauty amid the tears.

[Nikon D300, 200mm f/4 macro lens (300mm in 35mm terms), 36mm extension tube, three exposures with shutter speeds from 1/4 of a second to one second, all exposures at f/36 and ISO 100, tripod mounted.]
