how do you stop your baby crying?

Watching this scene was a stark reminder of the challenges facing parents in this century! Little child starts to cry, parents look on in confusion: 'what do we do? what DID we do?'

I marvelled at Yinka's friend's ability to make her daughter not only stop crying but actually to smile for the camera. I kinda love this shot, though.

It's a wonderful picture--it has a timeless quality to it.
Abisola Fatokun: Thanks Larry... I wouldn't have even looked at it in that light if you didn't mention it smile

I croon into the babies ear, or give the baby something...It's tough for me. I love both expressions, but would have loved the image more if it was sharper.
Abisola Fatokun: Thanks Ada. I would've loved it to be sharper myself - when I took the shot - but now that I'm stuck with this softer one... I don't mind it so much! smile
