After a weary week... in the midst of the financial crisis.

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...

I like very much, Hugo. The w/b gives to the portrait a special air. Leaving in the sadow the subject makes it more effective.

very intimate indeed -- this shot shows us that with all of our exterior layers stripped off, we are all the same spirit underneath... so humane -- bravo!!

Once again Hugo... the dim lights, and process really gives this shot a charm.
