Saul Leiter -- his marvelous oblique, strange and provisional photographs always manage to look as if they were taken with the greatest reluctance.

Shooting a reflection out of focus. This image shows the more realistic aspect of motherhood. How many times have you rocked your little one to sleep just like this? "Mother & Baby In Mirror" by Saul Leiter
