Dreamer's World

Canon EOS REBEL XT 1/500 second F/13.0 ISO 200 75 mm


"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

Basile Pesso from Paris, City of Aminus, France

Already a shovelful of remixes !

21 Jul 2012 11:34am

@Basile Pesso: probably in lacking another good images ! terrible day today ! no one remix for me, no 'the best image of the day' , the same as yesterday ! thx Basile !

Basile Pesso from Paris, City of Aminus, France

Nice for me !
Yesterday was great, today's really less.

21 Jul 2012 12:54pm

@Basile Pesso: good for you . I am not so easy to be satisfied!

Basile Pesso from Paris, City of Aminus, France

Yes, I don't think my picture of today is to be classified with the adjective "terrible", neither the one of yesterday, but it's as you want.

21 Jul 2012 1:02pm

@Basile Pesso: i am talking about a terrible day ( where I cannot select any picture to say - wow ! ) Yes, I saw your selection , and they are both just plain pictures , not terrible !!! [ the taste should not be discussed ]

Basile Pesso from Paris, City of Aminus, France

I was talking about my pictures, not my selections.
And "plain" can mean "ordinary", "banal" or also "pure", so I don't really know.

Fabulous! Love it :)

21 Jul 2012 7:26pm

Basile Pesso from Paris, City of Aminus, France

@Mariana : it looks as I won't have the meaning of "plain" in that particular case.
Nevermind, if you think my pictures are banal, you can think it.

21 Jul 2012 7:27pm

@Basile Pesso: o, my goodness Basile.. I really do not like you to talk like that ! I said nothing about your picture(s); Once again - All I said was - today I DID NOT find any image that I would say - wow , that I would remix ! That is all , and I do not feel like continuing this conversation since we do not get each other. Have a great night !

Basile Pesso from Paris, City of Aminus, France

Ah, ok !
You were talking about my two favourites of the day, whereas in my message before your answer of this morning (afternoon for me), I was talking about my pictures !
That's where the misunderstanding is, now I get it.
