spring garden lane...

Majong school, local fast food, 7-eleven... but you just won't find spring or garden.

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 way the cars catch the night electric lights is wonderful in the path you opened here for this man. Has a sci-fi feel with the red moving car approaching, a suspense is on - super cinematic & thrilling as a Thriller, Hugo ! Have a nice w-e & more*

Interesting character, and I like the viewpoint for the shot - very fashionable (would be good in a magazine).
Have a good weekend!

Colourful Dragon Hugo, I once thought about getting a dragon tattoo, but got an Eagle instead. Great night shot here, but who is this walking towards you...? Have a good weekend.

Cars, hoardings, shops and people Lane is what it looks like.

Well captured. Was wondering on the tilt or angle of the capture. Any thought behind that Hugo?

Fanciful name for a vibrant, gritty street. ;-)

Great shot! All the reflections are magical. I can never believe when I see a Circle K in Hong Kong. The angle and your approaching figure are excellent for the story and drama.

There is a beautiful luminescence to your night photos that I find just stunning. They have the feeling of intimacy.
