"a professional (wedding) photographer"

The Legislative Council Building, Hong Kong

This 2-storey granite building constructed in 1912 was the home of the former Supreme Court until 1985, since when it has been housing the Legislative Council of HK... It's one of the most impressive architecture in HK, and has also become a popular spot for taking wedding photos.

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 - Opening your daily post has become something I really look forward to. I'm enjoying the intimate look at Hong Kong - and your photography is consistently good. This is another well seen and produced image.

@Stephen Phillips: Thanks so much Stephen!! I won't be able to come up with something extraordinary and dramatic everytime, but if I can utilize my limited spare time to record the streets of my place of my time 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...

You wrote, "In terms of photography, I'm trying to preserve the moments as my eyes see "something" and my heart feels it too." I think you capture the images and the feelings masterfully, Hugo. And, like Stephen, I, too, look forward to seeing your photos show up in my BlogWatch. Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos with us!
