I glanced out the kitchen window of a friend's house and was, at first, startled by this baby sitting at the base of the tree. It only took a second to realize it was stone. I then I saw he's holding a small bird. It was given to my friend by her aunt and is very precious to her. The more I looked, the more I saw the absolute magic of him. I also instinctively knew this was a photograph that had to be in black and white.
