"our future..."

Mural on the abutment, 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...

@Marie Le Corre: Thanks so much Marie! The painting was lovely but the background details were distracting... glad I decided to hang in there a while longer and these pupils in high spirit entered the frame.:-)

very good, I absorbed by the concept, children going to the future but we should save and protect our planet if we want they have a future!
