----
After jury duty yesterday, I took a pitstop at the Market East Train Station in Philadelphia. So this was shot in the Women's Restroom.
----
Mom had to briefly leave her tiny baby in the protection of her older son, who took his responsibility exTREMEly seriously. When I shot this, Mom was washing her hands and gave me permission to photograph her children. The baby was resting on the changing table, cradled in his brother's arms.
-------------
More Jury duty today. Must rush.

Well done, indeed.

Oh Michelle, I so love your portraits. This is a great candid shot and I love that he is protective of his baby sibling. You captured that here.

This is award winning work my friend. I am so amazed at the level of your talent and the way you have captured some of the most profound images in a style that is raw, real, and of the highest journalist quality. A picture paints a thousand words and this one is speaking loud with its message, that look on that boys face says it all. If this one falls short of being in the winners circle, then none should be in it.
Exception work my friend.
