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...

Hugo - This is a splendid photograph. The bold contrast, the tilted perspective - and the offset of those human legs silhouetted in the corner - all give this rather simple capture - drama and great impact. Bravo!

Beautiful composition, Hugo. Strong lines, bold contrast, and just a hint of the human element make for a terrific image.
