Pudong Airport, Shanghai, China

PS. I'm just back from a business trip to Shanghai. Notwithstanding the bad weather and a pretty tight schedule, I managed to squeeze quite a few pics of this city of wonder. Look forward to reviewing, editing and sharing them with you in the coming week...

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...

Nice, Hugo - the detail of the raindrops on the glass definitely strikes a mood. Gray. Lonely. Chill. The worst kind of travel. Well seen.

I like how the rain drops cover the glass and let see the other plane.

The raindrops on the window add such a poignant atmosphere to this photograph. The unexpected is just outside the door. I really like this!

This is fabulous. So well seen and such an interesting view of what would otherwise be a "random" shot.

This is very simple, but yet it looks so cool, the silver look combined with the drops on the window is really what makes this image!
