This little series starts here:

FUJIFILM FinePix S5Pro 1/57 second F/2.5 ISO 1600 53 mm (35mm equiv.)

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...

Ha ! Here they are, your Bulldogs seem very human too ;) The presence of the girl changes it whole - super light and I'm so much fond of your night shots, Hugo : a whole world/planet in itself !

Well, Bulldog's and the young lady will be safe, I think. I don't know how much policing of the crowd down below they can do from up here. I like this shot a lot!
