mid autumn festival...

Two IFC and the full moon.

PS. We just had our Mid Autumn Festival (14 September), one of the most important traditional Chinese festivals for family reunion... Whilst waiting for my family to arrive, I was so drawn to the full moon and this skyscraper that I couldn't help taking a few shots with my little photo machine.:-)

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...
