"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."

cool processing!

17 Jul 2010 5:32am

@Pavan Kaul: thx Pavan . Nothing special about processing here .

Bettina from Los Angeles, United States

Oh my goodness. Honey is better than Pepsi. But I must say, it looks like the wicked witch is stocking up for the next batch of children to lure with sweetness. I'm sure she's a lovely lady, but the character in her face, and her pose are amazing. How do you manage in a grocery store without discovery? :)

17 Jul 2010 5:34am

@Bettina: thx Bettina. With little camera you can take pictures anywhere ;)

prarthana from singapore, Singapore

jpla from St Barthélémy d, France

Bel instantané ! Je te souhaite une agréable journée

17 Jul 2010 7:34am

Richard T from Leicester, United Kingdom

Their head gear suggests a certain life style for these two women.
Her eyes suggest: Oh I wish we could have some of that honey. She whispers to Agnes behind her and asks ''Have we got enough money? ''

A powerful concentration of colour which works well in the image.


17 Jul 2010 7:53am

@Richard T: your story is cool , richard ;)

Craig from Vacaville, California, United States

Cool processing!

Rather honey than Pepsi ;) They look like two of the good fairies from Sleeping Beauty.... maybe the third one is getting the food :) A wonderful shot Mariana. I love the colours and detail.

17 Jul 2010 8:22am

trilliana from Munich, Germany

very touchy shot. the two amish (?) women look so fragile and needy, as if never seen honey in bottles before.

17 Jul 2010 8:47am

@trilliana: ha ha ... cool comment :)) maybe they have their own honey , 100% pure one :)) See, I go to Mennonites to buy honey. This in bottle is miserable !

KriKridesign from Cully, Switzerland

Do you know The "Lucky Luke" comic strips?

Your old womens looks exactly if they are coming from Far West stories...Make me smile...

17 Jul 2010 8:51am

@KriKridesign: im glad they make you smile ;)) I could not find any character similar to them in this video ;)

KriKridesign from Cully, Switzerland

I think that it is because of the hat!...;-)

17 Jul 2010 12:57pm

Don Wiley from spokane, United States

A fine capture of these interesting ladies with their hidden faces. I love the one who appears to be counting her coins (or something). The action looks so natural. Fine image.

Fonts from Barcelona, Spain

A delicious instant! When we get older it seems that we need more sweets. Strange that of these old ladies wardrobe! I love the scene! Much tiempovivida and experience accumulated in its apparent fragility perhaps! Best regards. Adela

17 Jul 2010 2:32pm

Amanda from Jersey City, United States

I am so happy you found them again! I'm intrigued by these two adorable women--my mind races wanting to know more about them. Pepsi and does a lady choose?

Not sure about this shot. Not sure if i am vaguely worried about it in a funny way. Cannot work out why! Nice exposure mind.

17 Jul 2010 4:54pm

@Philip: I do not get your comment , sorry :)

Earl from Salisbury, NC, United States

Recently I've come to enjoy honey with breakfast and some swear it's very good for you. I like this shot and there's a story there no doubt.

Denny Jump Photo from Easton, PA, United States

Hi Mariana - I agree with Richard from Netherlands - this could not have been an easy grab to do...that is one thing that intrigues me about your wonderful phtographs: most of them I look at and say "hoe the heck did she do that, it's marvelous"....well I am saying it again...this is a very sweet shot (I just had to say it) Thank You Mariana

17 Jul 2010 6:40pm

@Denny Jump Photo: thx Denny a lot ;)

Sympathiques ces deux grand-mère qui font leurs courses

17 Jul 2010 9:24pm

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

Honey straight from the bee keeper is best. Unfortunately, the honey bees are dying around here. I like this shot of the girls shopping. They are cool!

17 Jul 2010 9:28pm

john4jack from Corvallis, Oregon, United States

I do love those hats.

17 Jul 2010 9:38pm

Shelle from Washington State, United States

there is a lot going on in this pic. I went from one woman to the other to see what each was doing. A bit mystery surrounding the woman in the background.

17 Jul 2010 10:13pm

Becky from los angeles, United States

Great image. So much left to the imagination. I love it.

17 Jul 2010 11:38pm

shoti from somewhere in, China

ahh.. I haven't forget these lovely ladies with childish antics yet.. they still wore the same hoodie? hehe beautiful catch

18 Jul 2010 1:14am

Phil David Alexander Morris from Canada

Great shot, like they came out of a fairy tale
or a J. K. Rowling's book.

18 Jul 2010 1:19am

Stephen Phillips from San Francisco, United States

Both of these ladies look so out of place amongst the fixtures of this modern store. It's the bonnets. Nicely captured.

18 Jul 2010 2:36am

Sugata from Newark, United States

Wonderful shot! Also, the repeated Pepsi logo in the background is a nice contrast to the healthy honey.

18 Jul 2010 4:53am

k@ from Paris, France

Ah, the super heroines are back, they really seem out of a cartoon, totally agree with Krikri, they have a Ma Dalton look and seem so unreal. I can't imagine their life, slow pace, little voices.... Two cute bees ;)

18 Jul 2010 7:22am

Farnaaz from Iran, Iran

When I was a child we had a show named Huch for children .. It was a honey bee the same as them on the bottles which looking for his mother all the time !!!

Gianny from Spisska Nova Ves, Slovakia

What a shot. Not only contrast of colors is interesting, but even more contrast of old women and new generation Coke. :)

20 Jul 2010 8:54am

Jaol from Gijon, Spain

Strange women these ones, looking so harsh dressed and their faces contrast with all this sweet honey. Well seen as always.

20 Jul 2010 9:22am

MadScientist from Düsseldorf, Germany

I remember them. Always like a time lapse.

21 Jul 2010 4:21pm

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

I see that hesitancy in the woman's face...."Should I buy? Should I not?" This photo reminds me of a sign I recently saw on the doors of a major grocery chain here in town....."No photography allowed." Took me by surprise.
