The Loupe

Canon EOS REBEL XT 1/160 second F/5.6 ISO 400 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

Very special and stunning.
The processing of the color background (the same than yesterday), the mix between color and B and W, the diversity of the scenes, make a very good mounting near to Apolline's work, and very sensitive.
You even mixed French and English in the title !

Philip from South Wales, United Kingdom

Nice composition. Could not make out the object in the hand - looked quite threatening to me (perhaps I have a vivid imagination)!

23 Jul 2012 7:55pm

@Philip: to me it looked like a magnifier and this sick-skinny girl passing-by and reflected on a glass could be seen only by using this magnifier :) My silly imagination too ;) Thx Philip !
