"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

Nice title Mariana. They look quite stressed. Excellent!

13 Apr 2012 5:21am

Ils réchauchauffent leurs rhumatismes au soleil. Je peux les comprendre.

Jaap from Heerenveen, Netherlands

They look quite relaxed, but the picture as a wholeb is relatively dramatic.

Gérard Beullac from Paris, France

Do they want to be assimilated to the wall?

13 Apr 2012 8:22am

Göran from Skanör, Sweden

1. I don't know if they are suffering from rheumatism. When one gets older the joints just need more warming up to function well. Believe me, I know.
2. To your comment on my yesterday comment; yes I would.

13 Apr 2012 8:26am

@Göran: he he ... I believe you ... i am getting similar issue :)

Phil David Morris, from Saskatoon, New York, Canada

What is Ana Maria, I just sent a note to one on a email for selling cologne,
how coincidental was that !! And a worse note, my friend LL's daughter is
sick and will not be able to come down to do a pic. Hopefully in the future
we will get a chance !~ Phil)

13 Apr 2012 10:01pm

@Phil David Morris,: I'm sorry to hear that . Whenever Lynn gets ready for wrinkled portrait, I would be ready too ;)
