dashing through the storm...

Another trip, another tight schedule, another plane to catch. Trying to get a few pics to remember the journey, shot through the window of the flying van...

From my earlier trip to Guangxi.

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...

Fabulous effect from the rain. This is excellent! I would love to get on a plane right now and have somewhere to be. Sometimes it's too much, and sometimes too little. I can't wait to see your pictures!

Your heart beats wonderfully through this photo-creative electrocardiogram, Hugo ! Vibes are green like springtime, new feelings, and this reminds me also of sound waves running in search of the right balance. SO rich is this abstract, i just love it ! And many many thanks for your visit while you are in-between trips, you are adorable. Take care t°°*

Abstraction on the fly. I hope one or two of the tires on that van managed to stay in contact with the road...
