Submitted for the PG 101 Candid Theme

Just got one shot off here before the baby noticed me. Then we started playing together, making silly faces and imitating one another. The father noticed, reached over, picked up a camera, and took a picture of me. In the end, I went into the coffee shop and met them :)

Bet you did go talk with them, Nikki. You are so good with folks in that way. And so good with grabbing the moment as you did here. That baby doesn't care a hoot what the adults around her are doing.

You are the queen of candids, Nikki, and this one says why!! It's a fabulous "slice of life" shot resulting in a very warm encounter I'm sure! And a terrific theme entry as well as a superb Finalist. Sorry I missed everything last month...but Super Congrats!
