    The unintentional framing also allows for the child and the interior of the home to be compositionally separated, adding a layer of depth that may ore may not be necessary. But instead of digging into the depths of my brain and deciphering a higher meaning, I would much rather take this image with a strict literality and enjoy this image and this moment for all that it is; a candid yet representation of a life completely new to me.
