It's a Boy Shouts the RCMP Officer

Not sure how many hours Kate was in labour but I sat for 5 and half hours on the sidewalk awaiting her arrival on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on Canada Day.

Thank heavens it was a beautiful day with no humidity and not a cloud in the sky. I got there at 6:30 a.m. scouted around for what I thought would be the best spot. They had fenced in an area where she would be descending from the carriage and walking up to her seat, but being a bit claustrophobic I choose the entrance where the carriage was to arrive. So I thought.

After trying to get information out of the RCMP as to which entrance the carriage would come in through, and they would not commit, I picked my spot and hoped it was the right entrance.

I had picked the right entrance; it was noon the sun a blazing and the crowds were shouting and clapping ….they were coming. I was getting nervous as I only had about 60 seconds to get an image. Will I shake? I could not have a tripod in this crowd, hand held only…quickly I held up my camera ……click click click…that’s it out of sight now. Did I get the images in focus? Quickly I looked at the back of my camera….I was so happy to see these images in focus.

Thank you for you comments, yes looking at the back of the camera can be deceiving only the computer really tells the truth. S
