"are they crazy?"

Yes, I can affirm that the whole city was crazy that night... perhaps except that lady who might have seen it all.:-)

Just a fun shot to remember the "fever" two weeks ago...

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...

Excellent, you've caught the crowd in the right moment, everyone is staring at the screen (everyone but you ;-)

Excellent perspective, you've caught the crowd in the right moment, all surprised and fixed to the screen.

Look at those colors. As I know you are not a friend of heavy postprocessing this picture is even more impressive and could well be HDR processed. Wow. You also know your way around marketing your pbase site. I bet everyone looking at this picture today will click through... :-)

i love your public shots mate -- you really should consider working in public 'installation' shots... the colors and the moments you capture are astoundingly candid. beautiful work!
