"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

Arr Day from Montréal, Canada

Simply beautiful. I really like the framing, with the more numerous electrical posts on the right in a narrower space, to accentuate the rhythm. Really great picture !

5 Dec 2012 2:44am

Gérard Beullac from Paris, France

Thanks for the answer, giving precious explanation points and I perfectly understand.
My feeling is coming from the fact I have lived around 20 years in the French Alps, Grenoble, and I'm very familiar with that kind of ambiance of skies showing nothing but a dirty grey color for entire weeks and the snow fading in water on the path to school ...
The feeling of monotony and boredom, as you say was actually very strong.
That said, these years in Grenoble are full of great souvenirs, too.

5 Dec 2012 8:09am

@Gérard Beullac: Now I thank you for this reply ! I understand !
