"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

And when he saw this 'girl' he thought - yes, my girlfriend is going to be like this woman . she is so pretty, with pretty glasses ! She is smart too , as men say about girls who are wearing glasses :))
