I was sitting directly across from the little boy and his mother. There was intense interaction the whole time between mother and child. Yet not once did she try to clean his face, which surprised me. The sunlight flooding in the south-facing windows was intense. So intense that out of half a dozen shots I took of the man, only one, with his face tilted down, in partial shadow, was useable.
