sunset mood of the city... (iii)

In the evening of a long tiring day, and in an ugly boring hazy sky, I found a charming setting sun...

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...

As if the sun was a ball able to bounce back over this surface as solid & straight in its lines as the sun is soft & sweet in its light. A story of a couple totally different & yet, they live equally share the same world & place in the image (i like the diagonale that shares the image in 2, with almost nothing on the left, but it's a lot since it's the sun itself, and almost many thing on the right but it's not that much since it's a piece of architecture that could collapse or disappear). A story of contrasts too ?

A crisp halo of the sun! The angle reminds me of that new Leonardo Di Crapio film where a city folds in half ^_^

Fantastic capture! I love the angle you've chosen and the fragment of the building. It becomes a kind of skewed horizon, like the sun is setting over the building. Excellent shot!

Hugo, could this be a scene from a future civilisation, buildings like pyramids.....? Seriously though, this is a fantastic image from corner to corner, 5 stars.
