"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

k@ from Paris, France

Another of your post-editiion very efficient work, i like a lot the building-like structure, as if they were prisoners of a city (american style, with skyscrapers) and waiting for Time to free them one day. They seem patient, no worry felt. And still so elegant, they kept all their dignity. Love the brownish tones. Feel as if the wire netting superimposed had just to be taking off, and they would walk freely in their life. Four women. Or is it "For women" ? ;) Love the elegance of the tale*

Amanda from Jersey City, United States

Are you reading my mind Mariana?? :) It can become overwhelming to feel trapped, confined, and to long for a fresh start. Somewhere new...but this image makes me wonder, is the grass always greener on the other side of the chain linked fence? Hmmmm....

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

A great composition that reminded me of the opening of the "Mary Tyler Moore Show" as she was walking through the downtown. Nice to see the use of a chain link fence again. ;-)
