The Family Campaspe Celebrates the First Weekend ...



of Abraham Ben, born Oct. 19, 2006, at 4:41 pm, in New York. While he thus far refuses interviews, sources close to the new arrival state he made his debut at 8 pounds, 8 ounces, 20 inches in length. So far the raves are unanimous. Publicists are currently deciding which paparazzi shot of Ben, or Bibou as his fans call him, is the most flattering for release to the public. Meanwhile, groggy best wishes, and the Siren will be back soon, she promises.

Hello Ben! Welcome to the world! What's the first movie you'll be watching with your mother?

Tonio Kruger said...

Very huge congrats, Campaspe. I think we're all dying to know the answer to Lance Mannion's question.

Zach Campbell said...

Big congratulations, Siren!

Campaspe said...

Thank you, dear friends! I am still wrestling with the photo functions, but hope to show Ben in his glory very soon.

Picture's frustratingly small...but congrats anyway, and what I can see looks lovely.

Shame the birth coincided with the various film festivals; I would've loved to introduce a few Filipino films. But hey, it's a baby...

Campaspe said...

Noel, ah, I can't claim credit. It is the family from Fanny och Alexander, as photographed by the late lamented Sven Nykvist. I was looking for a christening shot and wanted something joyous, not, you know, the Godfather. ;) This small still was the only one I could find, but it is probably my favorite scene in the movie.
