Hard Working Guys


"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

The glamor of the stars against the dramatic sky versus the working men. Beautiful contrasts in different sense.

19 Apr 2012 7:29pm

@Hanry: Yes, Hanry, this is a point of this image - people, like a little ants working on the building and passing bus with images of these celebrities in such a superb contrast. I was driving , waiting for the green light and looking at those guys up there on the building and thinking to zoom in to see them better, when this bus appeared in right moment in my frame ! I am so glad you got my point ( and imagine - nobody else :) ! Many thanks !
