"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."

k@ from Paris, France

I'm not sure those two can swim ;) yet the sea is super inviting : vivid blue, purple and bordeaux-red. Mr Cowboy seems to holds Mrs Cowgirl's hand tight, wondering what's happening in that car : Is she shooting us ? Actually we are all cowboys/girls with our camera-weapons (peaceful ones, happily). Cool target you found here !

15 Feb 2010 5:46pm
