"Make more fun..."

Happy Holiday Season!!!:-)

Bus Stop, Des Voeux Road Central, Hong Kong

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...

Well seen, Hugo. They are making fun, of course.
Difficult for me to read the "Happy woman rule 1", in your language :))

@Paco Díaz: Thanks Paco! It says, 'women should reduce unnecessary "friction" with men...' :-)
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Hugo - this is so very well seen. I have noted several times that I see a most talented photographer in you. Over this year - you have grown in sophistication in your view and presentation. It is a pleasure to have seen your work - and I look forward to viewing your daily posting.

A Merry Christmas to you, Hugo.

Merry Christmas to you, Hugo, and a prosperous New Year!
