"Aim far aim big..."

Johnston Road (The Tram Road), Wanchai, Hong Kong

I do not regard myself as a photographer. I'm an ordinary man but extraordinarily obsessed with capturing all the memorable scenes that I encounter in my everyday life. It's like an excited traveller craving to record his memorable journey in a memorable way, but in my case, it's the journey of my life ... If I can record my encounters in such a way that they leave an image on the mind of myself and other viewers, it's a tremendous joy and some accomplishment...
In terms of photography, I'm trying to preserve the moments as my eyes see "something" and my heart feels it too. As such, I seldom feel interested in planned, arranged or manipulated photographs...

Paco Díaz from Palma de Mallorca, Spain

Another fantastic capture with these figures compensating the painted one :)
Thanks for translating :))

I like a lot how she grabs the pole, dreamy, with the golf player grabbing his (super with the shadow) - but where the ball ? Maybe where the sweet woman is vaguely staring ? ;-)

They are both holding onto something. The man is free outside his urban environment and the woman trapped inside hers.............Nice composition

It has both a focused immediate feel with the posture of the person yet a universality through the window

Garfield from Ancaster Ontario, Canada

Oops, how did that happen? I was actually commenting on a different picture, hit, Post Comment and ta-daa it shows up on your blog. :)))

I'm fascinated by how my eye keeps drawing back to the lady in the window ... the huge, powerful train, the frail human being. LIKE IT

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

A wonderful composition, Hugo. I think the ladies aim is a little more down to earth.

Greg from Beijing, China

Evelyne Dubos from Le Mans, France

Very good composition... like the pensive air of the woman... probably she is going to work and probably she would prefere to play golf... or something else like that... :-))
