shopping is fun... (vi)

I've always been intrigued and enchanted by this lift shaft...

(The large and b&w version:

IFC Mall, Central, Hong Kong

I don't really enjoy shopping but I always love going shopping with my family - when they're busy with their shopping, I can walk around leisurely and do some shooting!:-) Hope you enjoy this little fun series too!

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...

Like windows in her mind, and her man walking out one of them, i like it most in colors, they are so sweet and work so well to detail the numerous & rich reflections. The french words written for the Agnès b. ad say "You need ideas, beautiful fabrics, clothes well cut...." (approximative translation ;) and she seems deep in her well cut ideas right there with that other lil' image, like a TV screen with subtitles down on the right, like a war documentary. A rich head full of great ideas (including yours first). And so elegant in the compo.

This is a wonderfully complex presentation . . I find it best seen viewed from a distance because it takes on a greater reality while not losing any of the intrigue. Very fine work.

An excellent combination of reflections that lead us to imagine many stories that relate to each other with a central idea that makes the title you've given! I love these pictures so that I like very much! Excite my imagination! Best regards, Adela
