"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

Paul from Singapore, Singapore

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

Love that cityscape through the glass. A lot of mystery here.

24 Oct 2009 5:33am

Nina from Haute Loire, France

Difficult to watch behind the glass: the rain makes the whole place! A little melancholy when it rains ... and mystery to the landscape that does not reveal ...

24 Oct 2009 5:45am

Luke Wiley from Spokane, United States

Craig@Random Ramblings from Herts, United Kingdom

Wonderful, I really like the textures the water has given up to us here and the buildings look as if they're painted. I really really love this, 5* from me.

we got some rain a few days ago :) i love the idea, our windows only got three drops of rain :(

24 Oct 2009 6:19am

@Chris Pereira: only 3 ? ha ha .. Your windows might be looking a wrong side ... you know, here, when it is raining it is blowing 70km/h ... so my windows really get washed very well :))

Dulcie from Danville, CA, United States

Stephane Themeze from Maryland, United States

A Beauty. Right up my alley. Looks like a painting. It got its texture too helped with the symphony of rain.
The subtle hues of green, the suggested thereness of a cityscape embedded in greens. Loveable...I do love it sweetly!

Have a Good W.E Mariana.
