"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."

Re CElliott's comment...not just Bacon....Canadian Bacon...and the farmer looks happier to me, than Mr or Mrs Swine....Could it be?....Nah, I won't touch that line!!

29 Apr 2011 2:12pm

@Denny Jump Photo: oh, no .. canadian bacon is terrible... What about Serbian bacon .. this is something you should try .. you would love it for sure :)) too bad I could not bring some here ... it is so well smoked and full of meat cooked as canadian bacon is :)

Very funny and great processed series!
As to what the 'clever' is due to my poor command of English. Sorry if it makes little sense. In any case, it is good to your work.

29 Apr 2011 5:10pm

@30065 - Javier Martín: you can write your comments in Spanish, why not . I translate the other comments too , not written in English . I asked you about clever BW, for all my BW images are the same, but they suddenly started being clever ;) It's ok, and thanks ;)

Rick from Toronto, Canada

Ha! Look at the proud pig-wrestling trainer, so pleased to see that all the hours of training have created a grade A student of the sport! This is the famous and hard to master hind-quarter grappling position! I can't believe you got such a rare shot, and that you topped it off with this trainer's proud smile! Oh wait... maybe I'm joking and taking it into silly territory because of all this UFC stuff happening in my city this week! Yes, yes, that's it... in all seriousness, Mariana, a wonderful two-panel post that made me laugh out loud. Thank you! (and now I must try Serbian bacon, after reading your reply)

29 Apr 2011 6:47pm

@Rick: you still have not tried serbian bacon ???? it means you do not have any yugoslavian friend :) How come ? ha ha ... well, when you get a friend , I mean Serbian, or Bosnian, or Croatian friend, then you will know what good food is :) what about this fighting ? You like it ? Oh , no . I am so scared of it :) Hey, I am glad you like this set of pictures, this funny story!
