"Everything is gonna be just fine... I promise..."

Few things in this life can top a mother's love to her child.

I can't tell you why the kid was crying, but I can tell you that it didn't take long for him to calm down :)

This really describes a mother's love for her child.
even when times are hard, she comforts you, no matter how bitter you may be.
and, she's always there for you, no matter what.

That's whats AWESOME about this pic.
You're not only a great photographer, but you're good at capturing the meaning of the picture. :)

They're both so beautiful! The eyes of the baby are absolutely striking--even more so in the color version, butthen they tend to lock and hold your eyes. For that reason, I prefer the black and white photo because his eyes are still quite striking, but not so much that you overlook the rest of the photo. The mother seems so tender, and that look on her face is so caring, so focused on her child, with that small smile that seems to say that she knows her baby's upset, but it's okay, it'll pass, everything will be alright because they have each other... I think I'm going to agree with tiffany about the shawl being very standout in the photo. It really emphasizes their connection, visually and symbolically. It does seem protective, wrapping them together and shielding them from the coldness outside while giving mother and child a shared warmth.

Your portraiture is so expressive. I feel like I'm able to get a real sense of who they are, and I think it's because you are so interested in who people are. It seems like you're not just looking for a well-framed photo, you want to know about your subjects, about people, and to portray them honestly. It's an important distinction, and it really shows in your photography. :)

DOF. :drool: :D

you have a wonderful talent for spotting moments like this in a city full of people. this is great because it's such an intensely personal moment between mother and child, but also a moment that a random stranger can relate to and find beauty in. the pattern of the shawl really brings the eye into the center, and helps bring focus to the moment. and those the shawl also seems to make it more's not just a mother holding her child, it's a mother wrapping her child inward, protecting him. amazing moment.
