"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

Strong image, and another story told...
Just feel its a bit too dark in the center. Maybe to much contrast ?

@Pedro Alves: thank you and sorry - I do not agree with you . Follow the light and see if it is possible to get the cornet lighter. Btw. what is in the corner ? Don't you feel a great light on this great couple ? I talk about them, not about corner !

What an adorable capture with the woman catching a "free" ride on her friend's power chair. It probably saved her arms from getting too achy and sore, which she had to be grateful for.
