Wind Wind Come So Slowly

"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."

I love this perspective of this older couple sitting, waiting - the breeze ruffling their hair, but not too much, each far away in their thoughts. Wonderful capture, Mariana!

An image of good timing, smiles, the passage of time (the thinning hair), and togetherness. Even the "simplest" views offer so many thoughtful layers. I like that.

Marie LC from Entre montagnes et Bretagne, France

I feel a lot of emotion every time I see elderly sat on a bench, each locked into the thoughts. I like very much this kind of photo

30 Sep 2011 3:22pm

@Marie LC: you are right . this couple sitting for long without talking or looking at each other . their hairs were more interesting to me this time than their facial expressions ;) thx Marie !
