A closer shot of the tram stop of yesterday... It was a beautiful afternoon.:-)

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...

It's great how billboards and advertisements become part of our urban landscape. Even more exciting when people stand in front or beside as if in interacting. The red packs quite a punch here Hugo! Excellent shot.

Your photos showing the interaction (or not) of people with the city's advertising are really original and intriguing. I like them.
