"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

This is a delicate operation that has to be performed by a specialist. Too many sensitive capillaries in the way of the finger. A rare sight of such a skilled procedure. Awesome.
