Proud of her Granddaughter

Canon PowerShot SX100 IS 1/200 second F/4.0 ISO 80 6 mm


"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
