"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."

Sonia Nansid from Barcelona Stockholm, Sweden

Very nice interpretation thanks to the title. The dog seems so bored to listen to the little one crying... if the mom lets the dog go he would probably run and run. Anyway, the kid expression is so truly hurting... like kids usually are...

11 Sep 2010 2:18pm

Lorraine from Gatineau, Canada

oh poor puppy and poor little girl, and poor mom who only has two hands....WOW what a CATCH, bravo

11 Sep 2010 2:23pm

@Lorraine: yes, poor mommy .. I see myself here, with my twins ... no dog though , but always one of my twins wanted me to carry him :)) the face of little girl looks originally as a face of my son Fedja when he was her age ;)) Always crying , always wanting something ...with crocodile's tears :)

?????? from Canada

Mariana, I've gone through your stream. There are almost no photos of boys or men, only of young girls. I've always thought you were a lesbian , and now I know you are worse than that, and I believe you are a pedophile. What say you Mariana?
