"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."

Christine from Ellemford, United Kingdom

I think this may be wasted on the children, they are probably thinking I could do that. Certainly not the thoughts of the man on the left :)
