PS. I'm afraid I'll be "absent" for a couple of days - some urgent business has just come up... Catch you later!:-)

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...

Simply wonderful Hugo! The rays shooting up in the night sky are lovely:)

This is the kind of shot I wouldn't even attempt without my trusty tripod, and the result would probably be dull. You've managed to pull it off with aplomb Hugo. Very nicely done.

Fantastic beans of light shining high into the sky. Another superb night time cityscape.

Two nice shots. I like the shear drama of yesterday's black and white - the contrast between your location and where I live in a small stone built town dating back 100 years. And now this more expansive shot with bold framing. Very effective.

Very great shot, I like the large dark area and the very vivid colors.
