White Angel

"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

Devi from Chennai, India

Carol from Leamington, Canada

I think this is a photo of 'the have and the have nots'.... some merely get by and others throw money to the wind like it grows on trees. This lovely lady is probably more genuine than those who think they have everything. A nice clear photo with a story, for sure!
