Outside McDonalds

Filed under: Robert Hoehne — rhoehne @ 10:33

I never eat McDonalds but I was inside the store anyway.  This fact and the title have nothing to do with the picture.



  1. I find this a very touching image.

    There are a number of links, baby’s eye contact with you, the mother’s kiss to the baby’s head and something taking the most of the mother’s attention to our left. There is almost a natural vignette within the image concentrating attention on mother and baby.

    Love it.

  2. A lovely poignant moment, and even mum looks vulnerable and baby heavy! The natural vgnetting isolates them effectiely and the chap passing by without paying attention completes the feeling.

  3. Yes, combine Rex’s and Mike’s comments and that pretty much says it.

    There is also the quality of the light and the way the colours play out that contribute to what one feels looking at this.

  4. I’ll also agree with the above and add that I like the look of the background as well.

    Eye contact with the baby is really key here — love that open awareness and interest that babies have — this shows it so well in contrast with the focused intent and directed thoughts of the mom and the passer-by.

  5. Everything on the pavement works wonderfully. The mother-child moment that only me as the viewer and the baby really get to see. The car and tree behind the lady let down the background. The framing along each side by the pillar and the gentleman give this a pleasing depth.
