Wish Fountain


"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

Chetan from Gurgaon, India

Au premier regard, la scène n'est pas compréhensible.
La petite fille va tomber dans l'eau si elle se penche plus. Mais peut être est ce son souhait :-)

mariana, great perspective for this capture! i know these situations, where you need a lot of hands to take care of your children, which are always in different "little and big" troubles! :D
but water has definitely a special attraction on little children!
wish you a nice weekend!

12 Aug 2011 8:58pm

Caryn Caldwell from United States

Hilarious! Such a fun, child-like moment. I love how they're so caught up in what they're doing that they don't even notice that they're flashing everyone.

15 Aug 2011 5:18pm

Ddo from Verdun, France

Un cliché surprenant qu on se demande comment interpreter. Mais si j'en crois ton titre, cette petite risque de tomber dans l'eau... Ne suffit il pas de jeter une piece pour faire son voeu? On croirait que le jeune à gauche s'apprete lui aussi à sauter..

15 Aug 2011 6:06pm

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

Ha, ha. That's funny.
