Picnicking With Father

Canon EOS REBEL XT 1/250 second F/5.6 ISO 400 190 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

Denny Jump Photo from Easton, PA, United States

You know what I really like is how the sun explodes off the leaves here and what I really like even more is the feeling I get as I see this singular act of folding a tablecloth(?) between grand(child) and Grand(father) as a harmonius and VERY heartwarming scene - it just makes me feel good Mariana ;-)

13 Sep 2012 3:43pm

@Denny Jump Photo: Yes, I felt very similar way when saw them, but I saw myself and my father ;) Thx again !
