"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."

Rick from Toronto, Canada

I love it, and your title too. This man's hand raised and finger pointing gesture is great and well seen in a split second's notice. I can imagine him also saying "oh thank god they have air conditioning"... :-) (hey, what happened to the good old days when men used to hold doors open for ladies?) *wink*

This is really a funny caption and wonderful image - This really does make me laugh.
