On a morning bus...

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...

This is such a strong, contemplative image. I love the blur of umbrellas outside. So fine.

What a cool shot Hugo! I love the scene you have captured, the rainy day mood! Interesting, the angle of the bus going downhill and those with umbrellas on the street making the feeling a little like a ride at an amusement park.
Excellent shot! *****
