Moving around the scene to get a few more snaps; but then it's this tree that's attracting me... Being a city guy liviing and working in a concrete jungle, I have always been drawn to trees of character (

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...

Even better, hugo, the composition of moon and branches is the best, and it's possible to see the body of the branches, not only the silhouettes. Great.
