One charming afternoon...

Southorn Playground, Wanchai, Hong Kong

PS. This is probably a more usual scene of the playground: http://hugopoon.aminus3.com/image/2008-08-08.html

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...

This is superb. I like how you managed the sun. Great light on the lady. I like it. That other view of the playground is pretty cool too.

Great angle and layers of light in the image. The woman here is the point of attraction of diagonal lines and light Very good, Hugo.

Great compo that offers an original inner graphism and mood here ! She seemed not to feel prisonner of all this modern architecture, good for her free spirit !
