Post challenge: This was so much fun to set up and take. Maiah, my granddaughter, couldn't take her eyes off of me. I loved the little grin in this shot.
I guess some people didn't get my humor. All the clutter in the bg was set-up. I wanted it to look grimy and cluttered. I know the technicals weren't the greatest. I really wanted to use this processing...' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/70000-74999/70661/120/683000.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/70000-74999/70661/120/683000.jpg', '/') + 1) .

Thanks for the comments and I'm glad some people liked it!
PS...I found this old hairdryer at a thrift store some time ago and I've been wanting to use it in a picture.

OMG Hipychik, that is too frickin funny, and you know what? When I was a kid we had that exact hair dryer, like a big inflatable shower cap with the hose on the end....we used it all the time! Wouldn't be suprised if my mum still has it in perfect working order. :-)

What a riot - so well done!!! It's a shame it didn't rate higher, because this image is really brilliant. Well, you're mentioned in the posthumous thread, which is where I saw it, so it's getting some well-deserved glory afterall.

What a scream! Love it. So funny. What a cute grandbaby too. She has such an adorable smile. (btw, I don't get the "noise" comments. Now that I am 40, I guess I just don't see that stuff any more :P)

This is sooooooo funny, and the baby is priceless. I cannot for the life of me understand all those extremely low votes -- oh, it seems they mistook the speckled dishwasher for noise -- dopes.

Great shot -- made me laugh. Crying baby would have made it better. White powdery stuff on dishwasher looked a little odd.

Nicely done!

Lol - I haven't seen the movie, but terrific photo. A bit too much grain on the stove and her jeans (left inside leg). Otherwise your image gives a complete story.

The child is amazing :) It looks a bit like modern Madonna with child to me. Great set up, I love the retro feel of this picture. Fantastic model. I can see a story behind it.

The baby's expression is great, but there is a little much going on in the background, it's distracting.

too much noise, and it just looks like a snapshot.4

Precious and very funny. The fact that the baby is smiling at the camera just makes it all the more surreal and comic.
