"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 was attracted by the two while immediately my attention was shifted to the mirror of the car as the reflection in it excited me too much---just sense without reasons!!! Voted!!
