"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

"Mmmm...what a good sex I had last night.... "

Apparently someone had a good night and no shit happened in this room. What I'm interested to know is why were you there at an hour like this capturing something like this? Did you spend the night in that same room as well? :))

@Ti: No, no like that :))) This is a brand new love story :))
