"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."

cajera from France

Tout le monde est déjà parti, mais il reste là, tel un caméléon se confondant avec l'environnement. Mais c'est sans compter sur l'oeil perçant de Mariana.

Ellebelle from Medemblik, Netherlands

I like the darkness and lines here ..........
If you get rid of the upper part so only the chairs are left, this image will be much more tight (I think).

Jean-Luc T. from Juignac, France

Arrivé le premier ou parti le dernier? C'est super Mariana

9 Apr 2012 6:57pm

@Jean-Luc T.: show goes on ( jazz festival), but temperature and humidity is very high and all other people moved under some trees from the side of this place with chairs ;) it is an open space , no conditioner, no wind :)

philippe from moselle, France

un vrai moment de solitude et presque d'invisibilité ;o) !!!

9 Apr 2012 7:04pm

Elaine Hancock from Rockville, United States

Beautful b&w. With all the chairs and the single figure, it definitely creates a feeling of isolation and aloneness.

9 Apr 2012 7:11pm

Fantastic b/w ~ a very attractive photo!

Gérard Méry from Saint-Cyr-sur-Loire, France

Excellent ce graphisme avec personnage..mais j'aurais coupé au ras des chaises en haut ..

10 Apr 2012 5:32pm

@Gérard Méry: thank to your comment and suggestion I fixed it right away :) Many thanks Gerard !

Gérard Méry from Saint-Cyr-sur-Loire, France

Bravo Mariana , je pense que c'est beaucoup mieux ainsi ..qu'en penses tu ? Bonnes soirée à toi .

10 Apr 2012 5:52pm

@Gérard Méry: Je pensais à cette idée, mais je n'aime pas mes images de culture. Je l'aime plus maintenant avec l'ajout de plus de chaises sur le dessus ... encore - pas de recadrage .. :) [ google translation - hopefully understandable ;) thanks again :)
