"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

Beautiful composition. An old purple house, dilapidated, beautiful architecture of windows and a superb light. You make a great picture. I like a lot, it's beautiful. The presence of the lady brings more to the picture.
Have a nice day.
