After ordering a coffee at a cafe opposite the Hotel de Ville next to the Seine, I noticed this child and her mother at the far end of the bar counter. The mom was nonchalantly standing with her back turned away from the little one (Nell), and fully immersed in a newspaper, while Nell was quite happily munching away on her baugette. This indifference struck be as both odd and humurous, and yet confident. Mom was very happy for me to shoot some frames. I don't know about the reader, but I felt that this image conveys a dated feel, and the small-town diners in the mid-west springs to mind. I personally really like this one. I hope that you do as well. Thanks, Andre
