She Got Mail

"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

Presence well displayed of this lady who ignores her environment to concentrate on her smartphone.

Veronique from France-and-, Switzerland

I like the roofs and the atmosphère in front of the shops. I first thought it was in an asian country.

stupenda, was my spontaneous word, in italian of course
[ not found between the suggested translations (beautiful, stunning, gorgeous, amazing, wonderful...) the "right" one ]
thank you

carol williams from istanbul, Turkey

the lady has a great presence despite being engrossed in her phone, and her modernity contrasts nicely with the ramshackle outlets behind. And the pigeon's silhouette is great - love the beak

24 Mar 2013 9:28am

@carol williams: I hope you have visited Sarajevo and its famous Baščaršija; it is not so far from Turkey !

J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage serré, l'enfilade des toits encore enneigés et la lumière dorée de cette scène de rue très pittoresque!
Bon dimanche, Mariana.

Bernard Vinceneux from NANTES, France

belle réalité sous la neige fondante
mais n'aurait-il pas fallu éclaircir un peu les ombres des boutiques ?

24 Mar 2013 6:20pm

@Bernard Vinceneux: Overlapping position of roofs and their texture , covered with snow is just enough part of shops . All the same, in different colors t-shirts really did not interest me at all. A girl, a pigeon, and part of sadrlan is what I find the most interesting in a frame . Thanks for your viewing and comment . Beautiful flower on your page, btw.

Nicou from Sion, Switzerland

Quelle vue et image avec ces toit recouvert de neige et cette dame au natel splendide.
