Baby in the Air

BABY IN THE AIR

Text and picture by Eki Qushay Akhwan

It would certainly be horrifying to see a baby in the air. But this is what I see almost everyday on my way to work at the Pasteur Exit of Padaleunyi toll road. This sight never fails to amaze and amuse me. Come rain or shine, the baby has always been there, waving and smiling in the air. So, one day, I deliberately stopped my car and took this picture, so that when it's (or he's) gone, I can still smile and be amused just by looking at this picture.

You wonder what the audition process was like for all those babies whose Mothers wanted them to be on that billboard...

This is such a wonderful image. It reminds me of the opening title sequence for the film version of The World According to Garp. (Forgive me. I'm a film nerd!)

This image makes me smile, too. Thanks for capturing it.

Eki..You asked about auditions? I don't know much but I see these things on television with a room full of screaming babies whose parents want them to be in a commercial or a magazine. I was just thinking about how much joy it would be for the children.

You have a talented 8 year old son!!! You have never mentioned your family. My 29 year old daughter is my only child. Thank you for your kind comments. She worked very hard for her degree and want to use it to help people. She is a good person.

I like the cloudscape you chose to include with your memory shot - a wonderful composition.

I like the baby... Looks cute with his innocent face... I like the clear blue sky, too... Looks peace with its pure color...
