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...

Aw, the larger view is so emotional, feel as if we can see & hear the people on board ! Ah those nights colors & lights of yours, you make the night always so vivid ! May your 2012 be that brilliant in many ways, my dear Hugo, and that road opening on the sea is a wonderful metaphor for our journey to come : calm & trustful, let's try to make the world better the way you do. My sincere friendship & thanks, HugO***
