"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."

Oh-oh, if you add the necessary pipe (you're right, my mistake !), now we have to add the super glasses too (and the shaved legs ?) Let's be complete with this festival-of-a-man ;)

2 Apr 2010 5:09pm

@k@: so many funny things about him .. he was my candy for that day when shoted him .. did not need more chocolate and candies for that day :) such a sweet man :))

Susan from Sausalito, United States

You know, if you cropped this just showing his face minus the hat, he would look fairly respectable--otherwise, oy. It's the legs all akimbo--and just a perfect cruel photo!!!

Amanda from Jersey City, United States

Oh my...... Looking at the pipe and glasses, I would expect a refined and distinguished gentleman. But alas, I look at the rest of his attire and find hot pink shorts, a baseball cap, and socks with sandals?! You have found quite the character Mariana! I'm intrigued by him! :)
