Walking Blind

Canon PowerShot SX40 HS 1/1600 second F/5.0 ISO 100 57 mm


"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

This photo makes me think of a game we used to play as children called 'blind man's bluff'.... we would be blindfolded and with our arms outstretched try to find the others that were standing close by. A very nice silhouette of this little girl Mariana...... she's at the beach so she must be having fun!
