"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

Bruno from Beauvais, France

Cadrage et texture sont au rendez-vous. Bien vu.

Henk van Rijssen from Utrecht, Netherlands

A very special photo.
The combination of colours and these small interruptions in the form of the windows makes it an very interesting photo. It raises a lot of questions :-)

Dulcie from Danville, CA, United States

A wonderful graphic shot; nicely divided spaces and beautiful color and rough textures. Almost missed the jammies. What a contrast they are in this shot. Nifty image !!

Bettina from Los Angeles, United States

Wow, great composition and those deep colors. I love the title. I assume those are striped pajamas stuffed into the corner of a window? That's very funny. The building is a pretty bad, beautiful mess. At least the pajamas are holding it all together.

Scott F. Schilling from San Martin, United States

I really like the deep red/orange against the white and the old windows and stucco details! Very nice work on this image!

11 May 2010 5:54am

NaDu from Köln, Germany

Charming wall, in such cases I'm undecided whether to consider the poorness or swarm romantically. Attractive detail to look at, but surely I wouldn't prefer to live in this house.
