"baby don't cry..."

The rain started pouring the minute I got off the bus...

Here's another version:

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...

Wonderfully done, Hugo. I like very much your sensibility for the images.

Great geometry, and, as with all your night images, such beautiful light.

So many frame within frames, like that game ! And the pouring rain adds so much mood ! I can picture you soaked but the photo is (always) the reward !

An absolutely stunning composition!!! The tears that fall in buckets down his face make me stop and stare. You really don't miss a thing, do you Hugo!
