Just as I thought this "solitude" series would come to an end for the time being, I bumped into a scene that I couldn't help taking a snap using the high ISO of my pocket dc...:-)

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...

Oh my, Hugo - this is a strong image with which to halt the series for now. The festive lights of the tower just add to your subject's isolation. A pensive mood - well captured.

As yesterday's, the presence of the illuminated building adds the feeling of loneliness to this man taking a break in his work.
I have enjoyed very much the series, Hugo, very poetic.

hey, this is great ! Like a lot that guy taking his deserved pause and above all the pink lights over the building ! I'm wondering what he's looking at - maybe another building, a window glittering with lights, and life inside ? Have a nice w-e, Hugo... Great serie !
