"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

morgan from canyon Country, United States

What a goldmine you found. She's amazing and the red chair behind her was the cherry on top.

Chris Pereira from San Jose, CA, United States

Charles De Gallue, I've always wanted to travel through there, Paris doesn't interest me as much as their airport does! It's such a beautiful place! Interesting portrait, I like how she's matching, and matching with the chair behind her. That's something i've noticed about europeans, they dress up to fly, I don't know if this is true for Canadians, or if you guys are like us, I've been at JFK or [insert generic large american airport] and there are people in pajamas with crazy bed hair in the terminals...

This has to be a dream portrait. The reds and whites throughout the image are so pure and beautiful. The lady's face has such character. An outstanding image, Mariana!

The title is great, make up like some of the girls wore in the 80's with cheeks
of clowns, hat of a Russian woman of quality. Great to see you back and hope
your holiday was fine.

5 Mar 2011 9:51pm

Mike from United States

Well, if you're going through the trouble of applying makeup, you might as well match your hat.
I don't know where you find these wonderfully kooky people all the time. I'm sure glad she sat in view of that red chair. That was a bonus! Nice one M.

Magnifique portrait, original et bien cadré... J'aime beaucoup cet instant de vie...


6 Mar 2011 12:52am

PixeLuz from Vitória, Brazil

Where did she come from? I would have liked to know it :) Maybe some other planet... And there is not only the red that makes her fantastic. I like to see her writing on paper, as if she were a journalist reporting about the nowadays world for people yet living in 1970 or 1980.
From time to time, I think of my father who died in 1984. He would be quite surprised if he could come back...

6 Mar 2011 12:53am

Satvik from Far far away, United States

ha ha :) Love the title ! The red color makes this shot, excellent capture !

Amanda from Jersey City, United States

What the heck?! She's used lipstick for blush, eye shadow, and for her lips?! I wouldn't be surprised if it's on her nails as well!

7 Mar 2011 2:43pm

Susan from Sausalito, United States

Perhaps if she wore her glasses she would she that she looks a little too flushed!
