Dead Tired

Canon PowerShot SX100 IS 1/60 second F/3.2 ISO 80 6 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

J.R. from Urasoe City, Japan

I agree with all the above, LOL! This is a thought provoking picture but I'm very tiered right now so I'm not sure where my thoughts are taking me, perhaps to the other bench:)

25 Sep 2012 11:37am

@J.R.: LOL .... go ahaid :) are your legs short or long enough to fit the bench :)

Mireille T. from Ribérac, France

The graphics and reflections are great. The person sleeping on the bench has no other choice, probably. It's so uncomfortable... It looks disquieting to me!
