“I am a feather for each wind that blows”
~ William Shakespeare quotes

"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

Quoting my namesake William - so clever, and so erudite. A great post for today - love the texture and black and white tones. Well done.
