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, yes it looks like something that swallows people. Great lines and geometry in this shot with excellent light. It's almost tempting to jump in!

Seems a gentle trap to me, or a gentle spider behind, elegant is her net and i like this eye/hole, almost inviting - i jump ! (at least in your photo and its great compo, cool sequel to the previous shot, they seem from the same family of inspiration : as if entangled in narrow paths, and yet i can feel enough room to breathe, escape, and live more than leave. I like that !

I like the geometry of the image. But what is it? A sculpture?

@António Pires: Just an architectural feature without any function that I can observe.:-)

Your title for this wonderful composition is perfect! It also reminds me of the aperture blades in a lens! Beautiful work Hugo!
