works of art

I know it's other people's art, but how could I resist...

Queen's Road East, Wanchai, Hong Kong

Streets, shops, people, life... more from my daily journey between work and home.

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...

Such a wonderful composition with a wealth of detail to observe and admire:) Lovely luminous colors and spot on exposure...The Bentley logo and the shop sign reflected on the bonnet is superb! Great work Hugo!

First one, I love this Bentley logo :), and also the angle that puts together the Bentley (a work of art) and the works of art inside the window, very diffent among them. Good shot, Hugo, as always.

Ah bravo ! I hate cars parked that prevents us to shoot but you very cleverly used this one, it's real cool ! And the whole composition, reflection, glass door, painting in that narrow framing, is really original !

It is a beautiful look! lights, the color, the combination of car, interior / exterior! This darkness is beautiful! enhances the intimacy of the place. I love this picture!

I love how you composed this shot . I also do not like to see other people's art being shot and presented as their shot . But , this car in front and art from the window-display gives much more than poor copy of someone's art !! Fantastic !

A very rich shot. All the colors of the art and the great reflections make this a treat for the eye.

Ian Smith from London, United Kingdom

A very nice shot Hugo. The portrait of the young lady is quite strong within the composition - perhaps a bit too powerful, but I love the composition.

@Ian Smith: Thanks Ian! Don't know if the shop was doing it intentionally, but this portrait was so remarkably highlighted... and it's this beautiful highlighted face that has drawn me in the first place!:-)
