Just a spontaneous shot taken on the plane... So, I guess this pic would wrap up this trip to Melbourne for the time being. You'll of course be more than welcome to check out my pbase gallery where I would add more pictures (including those "touristy" snapshots:-0) when I have the time to review and edit the rest...

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...

Spontaneity is never a bad things and can lead to all manner of interesting compositions in this case

A spontaneous shot! Ok, but the eye of the artist is essential :) Good one to say good bye to a trip.
I will look at your pbase series to enjoy more of it.

So wonderfully expressive Hugo! Kate's expression as she looks out of the window speaks of someone's "Exit"... Superbly observed and captured!

@k@: "Free her!" Yes... sadly, she didn't see the exit behind her...

Mirko Herzner from Mühlheim am Main, Germany

What an unusual concept, Hugo. I really like this shot as it takes some seconds to be figured out...

Very interesting and creative image Hugo! Very well spotted and captured. (I usually try to sleep on the plane...)

@Giovanni: Thanks Giovanni! I did try to get some sleep but just couldn't... too many distractions or attractions, I guess.:-)

Your spontaneous shot produced a very interesting result. I had to read the blurb to know exactly what I was looking at! ;-)
