Centre Street, Sai Ying Pun, Hong Kong

Streets, shops, people, life... another series of my everyday encounter.

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...

Love when we have that luck to catch people in their deep thoughts or abandon... Moving moments where we let everything (control, faces, appearance) go... Your woman here, half barefoot, with this Muscle man doing his exercices so close to her, seems locked in her mind but I'm sure a second later, she could have come back to reality and that great expression would have vanished. You shot our Inner Nowhere ! Bravo*

A superb capture Hugo! Her expression seems to convey despondency and seems to be bad...a great picture that captures her mood!

What is this lady going to do next ?
Is she going to smile at you holding you magic box with it's long nose or is she just going to look through you and then far ...far... away?
