No Babies Were Harmed in the Making of This Film

It was so windy last weekend, I took an Instagram video of the stroller blowing away.

Kelly was grateful for the ending of the clip, which shows that our baby wasn't actually inside the carriage. (Anyone who has picked up Lucy knows that she is a pretty effective anchor.)

But the stroller-in-peril scene is a classic cinematic technique, featured in "Battleship Potemkin"...

..."The Untouchables"...

And of course, "Speed."

I like to think that if my baby were actually in danger, I would put down the camera.
