A more ordinary angle shot to show how this spectacular flyover is like.

Hill Road Flyover, 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...

This fly-over is wild, Hugo. Thank you for the second view. Having the person in the foreground gives the image scale and the do-not-enter signs add interest and color. Nice.

It is amazing the way it wiggles through the neighbourhoods. I love the sense of movement and contrast.

that's some engineering :-) and I love how the guy in front seems to be thinking: 'who the f*k came up with this idea?' great photo.
