"1+1=3" and "M"

"M" for "marry", "mother", "merry"... Thanks to k@'s earlier posts (, I've decided to study mathematics and alphabet again.:-)

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...

A wonderful interpretation my friend! And nicely captured too. I love your view of things.

Splendid angle and composition. The tree also create a M with their silhouettes :))
I like very much this photo, Hugo, it's really warm and poetic.

Les premiers pas dans l'apprentissage de la vie guidés par ses parents laissent toujours de bon souvenirs.

Nice capture Hugo. I don't understand all these number and letter combinations though - I was never any good at maths - I just drew pictures and took photographs.
