"wait for me ..."


"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

Bettina from Los Angeles, United States

Although the wait on me probably refers to the man with the canes, the dog on the left is probably thinking something like that. The old gentleman seems to be moving ahead. Good for him! I love the light in this gorgeous image.
