"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."

@Earnest: Many thanks again for you visit :)) See, I love macros too, although my favorite shots are shots of people, when emotion could be read from a picture :)) These kind of shots are not so pretty as beautiful macros, but they are though provoking and each of us can feel it on a different way !
