~ The Doors - Riders on the storm


"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."
~ Andre Kertesz

Bill Jennings from Bay Area Northern Calif, United States

This is a great abstract. You have a knack for seeing images where others may pass them by. Well done.
