Cheer up young man...

I guess this wraps up the "solitude series"... for the time being.

(My solitude album: http://www.pbase.com/hpicckcy/the_solitude_album)

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...

Such a lonely feel here...solitude in the a busy city...sometimes I feel that is the worst feeling of all. You make this so beautiful!

Splendid, Hugo. The light of the nocturn advises gives to this image of solitude a critic and social accent very interesting and also very sad, in my opinion.
