"the cage"

In the core of the financial centre...

FUJIFILM FinePix F300EXR 1/200 second F/3.5 ISO 100 5 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...

Wow. Very striking and claustrophobic. A fabulous capture and view. I sure love it in b/w. That's just excellent.
