"bewitched?!"

It seems I'm not the only one who's enchanted with these trams...

Johnston Road (The Tram Road), Wanchai, Hong Kong

PS. More trams would be coming!:-)

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 on the way to work, how nice...i like how the palms fronds drape the tram, lead down into the composition...i like the color treatment, maybe a bit desaturated?...one day I'll make it to your neck of the woods for a little rest and relaxation and thanks to you I bet I'll know my way around :-)

Those trams are old but still running. An ambiance unique to Hong Kong. I'm looking forward to the remaining series.

Fantastic, Hugo - your protagonists actually seem to have locked eye contact - one to the other here. Humorous - but with unsettling undertones. Cool work, my beautifully sighted friend!

Love this one Hugo. The combination of stillness and motion is excellent. I like the guy with the cigarette on the far right, how clear he is against the background. Bravo.
