"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

Wonderful, a magnificent picture, I like a lot. This photo double, the woman sitting on the floor, and one that passes very quickly is the image of life. Everyone for himself we have more time to care for others.
Have a nice day.

Superb. Excellent framing, with that huge undefined figure in the foreground, half-sculpture, half-woman.

The homeless person (I assume) makes a sad contrast with the travel agency .......... life isn't that good for everyone ........ Great movement in the foreground!

A travel agency?
She seems far from these promises of distant horizons.
I like the composition with this foreground occupied by a passer-by.
