Just learnt that it's a very special day today... Happy Birthday k@!!!!!:-)
Wishing you everything that brings you happiness and peace today and always!!!

Here's the larger and colour version.:-)

FUJIFILM X-Pro1 1/2000 second F/1.8 ISO 400 53 mm (35mm equiv.)

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...

You're a precious, soul, Hugo. This touches me more than i could say (without taking the risk to turn too lyrical ;) I love the Springtime feel. Rebirth means a lot to me, and not only today. Tones & dof are a poem here.
Please let me offer you this quote that suits your work here and always & your deeply generous being so well, to thank you for your real friendship beyond pixels & virtual stuff. Many many thanks, i take this flower with me today***

"Whether he is an artist or not, the photographer is a joyous sensualist, for the simple reason that the eye traffics in feelings, not in thoughts" - (Walker Evans)

@k@: So glad you like these little flowers! Don't even know their name but I just love them... Cheers!

A very nice thoughtfulness...
Like the play with dof here and the choice of tonality.
