It's always good to have one...

FUJIFILM FinePix F200EXR 1/200 second F/3.3 ISO 100 7 mm

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...

Pavan Kaul from Mumbai, India

Sure is Hugo:) Fabulous colors, composition and candid mood!

The lines of the steps seem like waves, quiet ones, and the 2 friends sail with peace diving in their own readind with so much concentration they seem far away and yet close, sharing the place and the moment... Nice & tender one*

A thing that they could do completely alone, reading the newspaper, they preferred to sit side by side in an otherwise empty space. Well seen and captured.

Great shot, one thing that strikes me in this is the symmetry, the position of the two guys almost mirror like with leg position opposite hands holding the papers,
