Reminiscing - old streets, old shops, old buildings... are my memories inspiring me to photograph them or are the images of them bringing back the memories? I really don't know. But for sure, there're some yesterdays that I'd never forget...

PS. It's a shame that I missed the "self portrait" event - I've pre-posted the pic of today. I'll try to post a pic of myself tomorrow. "See" you then.:-)

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...

Hi HUgo, do these shops serve meals or only tea..?

You have just escaped the wrath of Lorraine for not posting your SP, ok, I'll tell it's tomorrow :)

@Observing: No meals Mike... but a diverse types of "bitter" tea or "cooling" tea: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_herb_tea
