"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."

Thanks Mariana! :)
Yes, I am still home, but doing the planning, reservations, and all that it's involved, drains me and leaves me very little time for other activities, that's why I decided to take a break from AM3 till I return. I still check out every couple of days the postings of other people whose work I admire.
Thanks again and have a great Summer.

Taken very interesting! If it were not for the presence of a character in a corner of the frame, something important would be lost...

J'aime bcp le choix du traitement oppose la vivacité insolente de cet arbre et le côté froid et figé du noir et blanc. Beau travail !
