shelley street II

I was trying to recall how this street was like before the "Central-Mid-Levels Escalators" was built but in vain...

Shelley Street, Mid-level, 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...

Beautiful geometric interplay and the lights add wonderful warmth to the shot. Thanks for sharing.

Oh, my - what a difference a little re-focus makes. I love this - but realize that is in large part having seen the previous post. Still- as an abstract - this has great energy. It would be fun to have prints of both hanging side-by-side.

Super shot Hugo, and everybody will interpret the image differently. I see the wet steel bar as a physical warning, a barrier that separates life & death.
