Fun and Enjoyment


"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 photo is BEAUTIFUL, capturing a time of enjoyment. I love the light. However, I can't help remembering that sharks are very active at this time of day. It's not a good time to be in the water.

@Mariana : the definition is, for example, the way that the bodies come off the sea, and the texture of the sea.
It doesn't only mean "files definition".
