"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

Jules from Drayton, United Kingdom

365's comment and your response gives this group and their way of life a legitimacy that is valid and credible - However I worry that the younger members of the community and their freedom to choose and embrace the "real world" with all the opportunities it has to offer.
