Isn't It Crazy


"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

Mariana, las buenas fotos vienen de una buena intuición que se tiene en momentos concretos y se tienen que aprovechas, como tu bien haces relación en tu comentario. Esta foto es genial, derivada del momento, la situación, la luz, el agua y los protagonista y con el revelado. Felicidades.
