"your world and my world..."

"they're drifted apart..."

Don't know why, Albert Hammond's song kept coming to my mind these days... A few more pics to come.

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...

Totally cinematic, like a still from the next blockbuster in HK ? I love the oh-so witty composition, suggesting instead of showing whole, just like a woman who would not appear naked but with delicate lace, always more evocative & sensuous, here, with the little we see, we can build up the whole story of this couple and of course i just love the echo of the couple of cars, one couple still, the other in great speed... I love your story in this moving diagonale...
