"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

Richard T from Leicester, United Kingdom

Ah ! The magic of 'five loaves' . My goodness this kid is just aching to get his hands on some of that bread.

When I was a kid, of not many years old, I used to be so ravenous from a day at school that I used to get home and have several slices of bread spread with butter and lashings of strawberry jam ...and that was before supper when my dad got in from work.


6 Dec 2010 7:41pm

@Richard T: what a sweet story Richard ! It is so lovely to share it here :) many of us have similar memories as you , i am the first one ;)
