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...

Another really tight composition. Looks like it could be Orwell's Ministry of Love building on the left. Quite chilling. Love the high contrast and sharpness.

Nice composition Hogo, but can we please have some colour from that Fujifilm of yours.
Any idea of a release date yet?

I like very much the good b/w you get on the right building and the tone if the left one. Great patterns and composition.

Wonder how you can get your hand on a F200EXR so quickly. I can't see it in the shops. Is it good?
