More colours of the night...

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...

Love the blurred striped colors on the bus and once again all those lines, signs, lights everywhere and yet, well organized in your compo. The billboard in the upper part looks like a window/curtain ready to fall over the passer-by, with the The End of a movie (a street movie ;)

it's like children's game, when you pretend to die eated by crocodiles if you miss one step on the yellow line.

Intersting street picture, the yellow line looks like a border between two worlds.

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

Why is he walking in the street? Perhaps, only he knows. A great shot with all the lights, billboards and people in motion.

Stephen Phillips from San Francisco, United States

I love shots like this, Hugo - the woman in the ad with the necklace looks more 'out-of-bounds' than the fellow walking in the street - on the double-yellow - just for emphasis. A matter of context.
