Andre Kertesz- I love this photo because it portrays the hidden, private, and best parts of life. Instead of focusing on the Eiffel Tower, it focuses on a man reading the newspaper, and everyday event for some.
The time of business does not with me differ from the time of prayer, and in the noise and clatter of my kitchen, while several persons are at the same time calling for different things, I possess God in as great tranquility as if I were upon my knees at the blessed sacrament.―Brother Lawrence Photograph: André Kertész, Fork, 1928 From parabola-magazine.
