Shut Up and Kiss Me

Canon EOS REBEL XT 1/60 second F/5.0 ISO 400 150 mm


"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

NaDu from Köln, Germany

They seem to dance. She's lost in the moment and I'm lost in this photo.
