"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

@grouser: what's Roll UP ? You buy a Tim Horton's coffee, paper cup of course, and roll up the upper edge to see what you win :) You usually win nothing , but if you are really persistent one day you will win another free coffee :) A car ? Never !
