"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

I like the contemporary touches in this wonderful image ......... a can of soda with a straw, a hip belt and sneakers ......
Great background (color)!!

Gérard Beullac from Paris, France

The scene is intriguing, the treatment of colours (cross processing?) superb, with that special red in the background contrasting so well with the green/bluish tonality of the whole.
