It's hard to forget this sky... and that rain water pipe too.:-)

(PS. So this was our "home".)

Neerim Road, Glen Huntly, Melbourne

This series has grown unexpectedly long - my stay in Melbourne was less than a week yet I have been reviewing, processing and posting the pics for an entire month now. Not because I have got plenty marvelous shots but the explanation is I miss the stay so much... Looking at these pics just makes me feel like visiting my son and enjoying the family reunion again.:-)

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...

Such clarity Hugo. It must have felt quite different to the humidity of HK.

So pleasing in its simple graphics. You have divided the frame wonderfully well, distributing the various elements with skill.

The best thing about this picture is the simplicity! Superb stuff! Love the bright blue, the pale yellow with that streak of silver.

A graphic composition which plays with lines and contrasted colors (what a sky !!), well seen.

I love that shiny steel pipe against the brilliant Blue sky, it's an excellent architectural abstract image, rectangular and clean. Have a good Sunday Hugo

You have the eye and the sense of going from the complex to the simple effortlessly but always catching the eye and the attention with powerful subjects, Hugo. A joy!

I like your words friend! I hope that someday the human race look at the sky and the rain and respect them both ... as a source of life! A hug, Adela
