"Closing Pause"

Thomas Paluch, MD

 

A surgeon contemplates the only part of the operation the patient will ever see. Dr Paluch is a Staff Surgeon at the San Diego Medical Center where he has practiced for 21 years, specializing in minimally invasive surgery. He has been taking and making pictures for over 25 years. Originally focused on underwater photography, his latest passion is sports photography and action portraiture. Occasionally his camera accompanies him to the operating room.

This photograph was taken with available light using a Nikon D700 using a 17-55 f2.8 lens.
