"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

Mooie from Vancouver, Canada

I don't know why but that guy on the left reminds me of Sean Penn.... I love the moment captured here.... his expression is hard. And the pp is cool... kind of has a Norman Rockwell painting finish to it.
