"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

A picture of male dominance or on the other hand maybe a need for a good lady to help him rest from the stress of life. either way a good capture.

:-) Haaa....there is 2-3 ways of seeing this picture !

@Veronique: i am sure that at least one of ways of seeing this image is the same as mine ;) and it would be nothing else but man-woman relationship; respect-disrespect; different timing and different desires ...
