"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

Michael Rawluk from Canada

I like this. She has kind of a dreamy lost look to her.

I spent a lot of time whit my grandfather when I was a kid, most of time he was reading for me, after lunch, in his studio/library...that room was a world, that stories created worlds. But what is inside me still today - 60 years later - is something like :
Him, showing me the WINDOW, and saying: "Look, have a look, go. And look."
And what I feel, deeply inside, was something not said, but absolutely clear:
"Don't be afraid, no need. Look, and participate as You are"
Thanks Mariana for your WINDOWS:

It's a window into another world for me. The past. Reminiscent of travelling on crowded buses and trains in Asia

That is such an interesting window - a home, public transport, do they know each other, are they strangers - fabulous and gorgeous b&w too.

franz from Baden, Austria

i like this sense of turn around - normally windows are things one looks out of, but you look IN through this window to discover a world of its own! brilliant ...
