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...

Paco Díaz from Palma de Mallorca, Spain

Peaceful image of the afternoon in the park. I like very much the composition and the b/w. You waited till all the people was looking in the same direction! Welll done, my friend.

The directions of the eyes of the characters here are so ggod : 2 indifferents, 2 admiring... There is a real slow movement i can feel and it fits Qi Kong so well ~

There is a certain symmetry here with the men sitting on the two benches, each in the same position of each bench. Well seen and spotted, Hugo!

A brilliant composition. That park looks like a neat place to take some air and people watch.
