Bus stop fantasy (ii)...

Queensway, Hong Kong

FUJIFILM FinePix F200EXR 1/12 second F/3.3 ISO 400 7 mm

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 a wow image! The people on the bus have no idea you are working magic a few feet away. Very cool.

Superb! Bus stop fantasy is an appropriate name as I never know what is real or just reflection. Wonderful!

Hi Hugo, our dear K@ reminded me of your blog i had already visited long time ago : like it a lot !! A lot of wonderful street shots, kind of photos i find so facsinating and like to do as well, expecially a night. I'm back from China and i am to post some shots i did in Shangaï, Pekin, Chongqing (a travel i really really enjoyed ! :). It was even planed to come to Hong Kong but finally canceled (lack of time). Hop i'll have the opportunity to visit this place one day. But for the moment it would be a real pleasure for me if you come to visit my blog one day. See you then maybe and congrats again for your so nice shots.

MARIANA from Waterloo, Canada

Awesome play with layers and 'people' :)) Cool message of course ! It associates somehow on some 'fake friends' on Aminus !

Great picture, great eye !

bluechameleon from Vancouver, Canada

This is fantastic! Is this a reflection of an advertisement on the widows/doors of the bus, or people on the inside looking out? So many layers here and I cannot tell what is real or fantasy...superb!

A-MA-ZING! You fooled me for a while, I was mesmerized by the composition and her eyes and "movement", I didn't immediately realize this was part of an advertisement...
