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...

Nice capture Hugo. I do like the concept, but I think I prefer the alternative.

Beautiful capture Hugo. I love the reflections and dripping city scene. Like paint running down a canvas.

Just checking back in to say how much I love your 'alternate view'. The tilt and subtlety are poetic and quite seductive. I could envision sitting by this window being serenaded by the rain and the wind. Both get all of the stars.

from the thumbnail, i cld recognise the neon lights - thou they look like an explosion/fireworks.
the actual image itself is much more calming. initially i thought it was a reflection but from the perspective and ht, thru the wet window.
i like the image u've captured.
