"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."

thami from Fès, Morocco

Excellente association entre la personne courbée qui passe et l'ustensile de cuisine de la publicité ! L'ensemble fonctionne comme un pantin doté d'un large remontoir dans le dos...
Bon début de semaine lumineuse!

Sylvie Fondacci from Paris, France

Great shot !

11 Mar 2013 12:31pm

@Sylvie Fondacci: WHY ? [you asked me why your shot is interesting to me. if i am not delighted with one image and if my emotions are not awaken by looking at the image i have a problem to describe this image further. so, your image is cool, but not what I am looking in photography - emotions, stories, deeper meaning, imagination .... ]

Ol from Nice Bushes, Germany

great catch, he looks like carrying the weight of the whole world...

thierry from anseremme, Belgium

excellent, belle photo

11 Mar 2013 1:34pm

Sylvie Fondacci from Paris, France

Why ? Because it has a meaning ... I like when pictures have a meaning, a message, sometimes maybe the one each of us give to the picture and which can be different from the one you wanted to give to it. Thanks for your answer.

Arr Day from montréal, Canada

Disconcerting picture. The complementary colors that are blue and orange create a balance, the warmth of the orange and the cold of the blue, on the orther hand, speak of opposition, and the bent man with the spatula have a strange relationship of alike and dislike. A discourse that is not easy to read, and leaves wondering.It fascinates me as much as it sets me off - a feeling I like, and I guess you know it by now.

12 Mar 2013 12:01am

@Arr Day: thanks Arr. i agree that image has many different interpretations.
