"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

der Träger hat für mich keinen Geschmack. Rostbraune Schuhe und blaue Socken passt nicht.
Sehr gut gesehen.

Good evening Mariana, A photo with intense colors which inspire me a dramatic art of the everyday life, a framing which preserves all the secrets to ask to you for it finally more on the life of your character ... ;-)

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Interesting to see how you captured the pattern from the sock still visible on the leg. Not exactly like Dorothy's "ruby reds." :-)

No, actually I'm not that fond of portraits ... mainly only yours and a few others', as well as a few of my own. What I love is great photography ... any subject ~ using any technique. ;-)
