"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."

Truly imaginative. I guess this is how you found her, already behind the bars, but you used them very effectively. There is a curve (the fencing) in this picture that I like pretty much.

@Arr Day: thx Arr. Interesting that you found a little detail that I did not notice before :)
