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...

I bet your camera is still blinking after being dragged out of the Hong Kong night to take these last two 'into the light' shots. Both very nice. Love the mood, especially yesterdays.

I'm more fan of yesterday's shot due to the B&W I guess (maybe, that's B&W too ?? :) but this one is great too ! Especially the sea !!

Such great sky and lovely seascape...I am curious to see if you have one photo with the boat just in front of the sun reflection or in front of the sun itself...I am just wondering about the shadow effect or the silhouette of it!
