"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

I don't usually "get" street photography. But, I get this shot. You couldn't have a better backdrop than the sign and motion blur! This image is packed with visual interest! Excellent capture!
