Tax Free !


"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

macgo from Spain

A veces viene bien relajarse y tomar otro tipo de fotografías que las que uno hace a menudo. Me encanta el tipo de fotografía social que haces pero esta de hoy me ha impactado precisamente por lo inesperado. :-))

28 May 2010 8:59am

Lemi Hacıoğlu from Istanbul, Turkey

Nice capture ;)

28 May 2010 9:46am

MadScientist from Düsseldorf, Germany

Whoever she is and whatever she does: compared to most people on your other shots, her style looks astonishingly discreet and straight. What would be looking quite normal in other places, looks quite vulnerable in the concrete environment here, which results in a somewhat disturbing effect.

28 May 2010 10:03am

Elena Kotrotsou from Drossia, Greece

Cool capture and title

28 May 2010 10:46am

Good afternoon Mariana,
I think the lady looks very discreet and normal. It led not to an ambiguous way of thinking. Have a nice day. Sincerely Christel

28 May 2010 1:22pm

Mariana Excellent! A gift you have to catch the good image among the people around you! Best regards, Adela

28 May 2010 3:00pm

don from spoke, United States

The wavy lines behind the lady complement the female form rather well I think. The interplay between "tax free" and the young person is another issue. One that is open to many interpretations - it's in the eye of the beholder I suppose. Nice street shot.

28 May 2010 3:08pm

rian from mobile, United States

quite a sexy woman.. :) very nice candid.. there's something weird on her head though..

28 May 2010 3:11pm

Golden sexy looking girl surrounded by gold & silver, a luminous apparition, no big enough pockets to save money but she seems FREE, and the best way ;)

28 May 2010 6:18pm

@k@: I usually do not look at those sexy golden girls but this one really wanted me to take a shot ;) She was walking up and down this street 100 times. I was sitting on a patio and needed to shot her :)) Thanks Karine . Have a great night and weekend:)

Hahah--that's one way to market herself I guess. :) I love the way that text can transform an image and take your mind down a completely different path.

poor girl - she doesn't even have enough money to buy a shirt which is long enough to cover her belly ...

28 May 2010 9:19pm

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

An interesting composition where just about everything seen is made of straight lines, except for the metal "cabinet" which reflects light in various warped lines and highlights the curvature of the woman. ;-)

28 May 2010 10:03pm
