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 first thought it could be a bike up there. Then it seems like an ink, calligraphy in the air you wrote with what you see and the brush of your lens. The tram road is double, down the street/ground and up in the air/clouds. We should never forget we are made like this too, standing up in-between ups & downs, earth & sky, and that it's important to stay linked to our upper cables too ;) Of course i love the drawing the thick oily lines offer within your choice of frame. A mysterious sign of strong black/yang diagonals criss-crossing and sharing the white/yin space the best way.

@k@: This is more abstractive than I normally do (not I don't like to but the urban scenes of my place always contain too many details in chaos) and I'm really pleased with how this came out! Thank you k@ for reading into it and sharing your beautiful words!

The scene above out heads can be electric. This graphic silhouette of beautiful linear shapes and strong criss-crossing diagonals is a dramatic sight.

Nice how the cables run from corner to corner like they do! I love the silhouette of the strong pull of them making them look like a graphic print of some sort! Cool job :)
