IFC (International Finance Centre), Central, Hong Kong

Two IFC is the tallest building in HK: http://k43.pbase.com/o2/63/546263/1/97845435.tBvYpPAj.ifcetc.jpg
Not only is this skyscraper one of my favourite subjects, the mall is also the place my family loves to hang around. So while my family is busy doing shopping, I'll just slip and do some shooting...:-)

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...

The light and detail everywhere in this image is perfect. The band of light on the street is the accent that makes this image sparkle. Nicely done, Hugo.

I like this one better than yesterday's. There is more to explore and the perspective is somehow friendlier. Good one!
