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...

I am absolutely amazed by your photo. The best of the day - love so much - love for its atmosphere, great tones, the line of the birds and the silhouettes of the buildings. LOVE!!!!

Well spotted Hugo through all that mist, you must have looked up at the right moment, gives a sense of loneliness

Pure delight my dear friend, so subtle, it's a metaphor for your mind i picture that subtle (not that foggy, be reassured ;) I love what i can only guess here and the necklace of birds in the sky above us all. A poem.
See you and courage for everything you have to do.
