"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

Ellebelle from Medemblik, Netherlands

He looks a bit suspicious ......... Is he going to steel that wheel? ;-))

Cool composition and processing :) The guy looks like he's from a different picture.

9 Aug 2012 10:04am

@Pnyks: bad imagination, Pnyks . He was under this truck when saw me with camera and quickly he stood up and stared at me. He is so much in this frame !

Stephen from Canberra, Australia

Intriguing image with the blur of movement and the darkness under the car - I like the contrast with the sharp focus on the Goodyear tyre.

Gérard Méry from Tours, France

On se demande ce que fait cet homme courbé en deux...aux jambes de cycliste comme les miennes. Peut-être veut-il changer de pneu ?
