...going through a grey period, have you noticed?

“What is a face, really? Its own photo? Its make-up? Or is it a face as painted by such or such painter? That which is in front? Inside? Behind? And the rest? Doesn't everyone look at himself in his own particular way? Deformations simply do not exist”
Pablo Picasso [25 October 1881 – 8 April 1973. spanish painter and sculptor. one of the most recognized figures in 20th-century art, he is best known for co-founding the Cubist movement and for the wide variety of styles embodied in his work]

I love the criosity of the children ! Nice mono with selective desaturation.

Thierry LEROY said...

La désaturation sélective n'est pas parfaite mais le cadrage et le sujet (l'enfant et la découverte du monde) sont très biens.

Sorry Romina, no speak english but thank you for visit my fotoblog.
