"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

I have so many memories of Sarajevo, the name by itself is so sweet to listen to , but ... so sad as well. Annierita

Pixim from Nice, France

Your way of presenting us Sarajevo is so particular, so recurring. The man is only crossing, as the water of this river, only the city and its building want to keep memory of this past. In every case, beautiful stake in perspective of your memory

Marie LC from Entre montagnes et Bretagne, France

Tes images me touchent toujours beaucoup et cependant tu es une des personnes que j'arrive le moins bien à commenter, sans doute parce que tes photos se passent de mots et sont un morceau de vie très parlant à chaque fois.

Very good processing, good composition for an image very close to the one before the last one of k@.

@Basile Pesso: oh , please, do not compare my work with karine's thx for visiting !

Basile Pesso from France

Oh, you don't want to ?
It's not a bad comparison, I think !
Anyway, if you just want to have a look on the picture I'm talking about...

28 May 2012 12:34pm

@Basile Pesso: I will not talk about bad or good comparison , but I simply dislike when someone comes on my page and talk about K@ . I had enough of that in past !

Basile Pesso from France

I couldn't guess...

@Basile Pesso: I know .. I know ... thanks again and sorry ;)
