"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

Superb framing and processing. Although he is not alone, it made me think of the Beatles song "Fool On The Hill" and the chorus
But the fool on the hill
sees the sun going down
and the eyes in his head
see the world spinning round
