article imageOp-Ed: Photo Essay — People at work Special

By Joseph Boltrukiewicz     Dec 31, 2012 in World
People at work have always fascinated me. Hands occupied by something they work with and the artists with their magical objects they make music with. Their eyesight almost always off from the camera's lens.
Concentrated and brought to a complete stillness facial expressions showing a moment of something important happening in the process from A to B. Nothing else is more important than this very moment and nobody should interrupt.
I know that if I don't have my camera at this moment, I will never get a second chance to come back for the re-shoot. I can come back to architecture or natural things when the light will change its quality in few hours away. But once I don't use my camera and don't press the button right now, I will lose this magical moment for ever.
