"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 those muted colours. It looks like the cat heard something and is deciding whether to run or to go in for a closer look.

cajera from France

Ce bric à brac est l'endroit idéal pour se cacher quand le chat est là, mais il ne faut pas faire de bruit.
Joli ton qui donne l'aspect vieillot d'une époque ancienne à la photo. Cette image aurait pu être en noir et blanc, mais n'aurait apporté le même aspect.
