Hommage à Kertesz

This morning I was up before the sun. It doesn’t happen often.
I work very well long after the sun goes down so I rarely see it rise.

From my kitchen, waiting for the coffee to brew and the bread to toast, I watched the light on these buildings change. I could see the sun, reflected in one small window over there on the other side of the canal. I grabbed a camera and just when I was about to take the photo, André Kertesz came flying by.

He’s been on my mind since seeing the retrospective at Jeu de Paume.
Is it possible to miss someone you have never met?

    I too have seen birds appear when thinking about a person gone missing. They often sit on a railing, or one time, enter into the house on the window ledge, look at me as if to say, “Don’t worry.” And then they go off leaving me with the suspicion that something pretty unusual just happened.
