"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

Genijalno!!!!! Cak ti ni ovo nije promaklo! Nasa stvarnost!!!

@Biserka: Cao Cico :) Bas mi je drago da ti se dopada ova slika iz Sarajeva. Stajala sam preko puta ulice i sjetila se svih nasih genijalnih grupa, pocev od Bijelog Dugmeta itd, pa onda kako je politika ojacala toliko da je sjebala sve u nasem dragom Sarajevu . Ovu sliku samo ti mozes razumjeti, ne ovi koji komentarisu - dobre boje ;) Ljubim te !

From all your photos of Sarajevo, I think you're trying to show us here how things have changed (for better or for worse) since the time you lived there. A very strong and powerful message!
