Mum sent over this beautiful bird mobile for Evelyn, for Christmas. She sells very nice hand-made stuff at http://www.houseofshallana.co.uk
My main idea was to place this over Evelyn's cot while she was asleep and photograph the two of them, but that quickly unravelled when she was refusing to sleep. I couldn't risk turning on the light and using the noisy clunking SLR to photograph the scene (though I reckon it would have been excellent), since it had already taken two hours to get her to sleep the first time. Instead I made do with this "safe" photo, taken long before we tried to set her down to sleep. I try to take a safe photo in case the experimental one does not work out.
Constructive criticism and any made-up stories are welcome!
