the "big tree" and 2 ifc again...

After catching the "Countdown Fireworks" (yesterday's pic), I took a stroll in Central District...
"I don't capture that subject, that subject captures me." To me, Two IFC is exactly that kind of subject. Brilliantly illuminated, and with that "Big Christmas Tree" in the foreground, against a dark cloudless sky... How could I resist?
O.K. I would refrain myself from posting another shot of the building in the near future.:-)

All the best for 2009!!!

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...

Stunning image. Don't worry, Hugo. I don't easily tire of seeing IFC #2.

So sharp, and perfectly exposed... Hugo, I beg you never to stop taking photos of the IFC towers - you capture it so well.

I think that the best in the photo is the detailed white of the light agains the black of the sky, well combined with the soft coloured lights of the tree.
Great image for a beautiful building, congratulations
