"city lights"

The city by night... (iii)

Central, Hong Kong

PS. A little series of the moments that the city (concrete jungle) magically and suddenly becomes an enchantment to me - when evening falls and lights are on.:-)

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...

The eyes say "ahhh" at this shot. I love the light, the glow, all the fine details! What a fantastic capture! This is just gorgeous, I could look at it for hours. The light in the sky is wonderful.
