Wishing everyone a sparkling colourful holiday season!:-)

Central, Hong Kong

FUJIFILM FinePix X100 1/15 second F/2.8 ISO 3200 23 mm

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...

A beautiful view, Hugo. I was just looking at photos from our trip a year ago. The bank buildings, on the left, caught my eye with their festive looking lights. Happy holidays to you and your family.
