"awaiting"

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...

Gérard Beullac from Paris, France

Excellent image, The DOF is superb. Finally did you buy this camera?

A wonderfully composed image with great depth and sense of the big city. I like how small the waiting man looks juxtaposed against the vastness of the city night. Brilliant work Hugo :^)

The line-up of lights up is great in this stri-ong perspective, seems they run the way his mind & thoughts do even if he stays still. Have a superb week-end, Hugo*

Hugo, thanks for this magnificent shot with this superb framing and exposure. It cheers me up for the weekend, and entices me to grab the camera and go to take photographs at night. Just wonderful.
