"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."

Well done, interesting the windows mostly all open, must be some way to hold them steady so the wind doesn't blow them:)
