Waiting for School Bus

"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."

La composition est excellente avec l'avant de cette grosse voiture qui nous donne l'échelle de la taille de ces deux adorables bouts de chou. Le N&B baigne la scène dans une atmosphère un peu grave . J'adore ce contraste!
Bonne journée, Manola!

Those kids are somehow endearing sight. The car will pay attention to the mirrors. I actually had a bus driver and then I'd never seen anything like it.
