"father and daughter"

Posted by

One Sunday afternoon... while the mother was doing her shopping.:-)

Here's another sweet moment that I couldn't resist!

Lockhart Road, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong

FUJIFILM X-Pro1 1/300 second F/8.0 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...

The light just softened everything and makes this really sweet image. The angle and the position to take this shot is amazing ! By the way thanks for watching my blog, i appreciate !

Love is that fortress, isn't it ? Superb movement of the bodies & eyes bent toward each other in that great portrait and i'm fond on this kind of B&W (as you'll see soon - took one yesterday in the woods ;) Superb ! Have a nice end of w-e, my dear Hugo & thanks for the feeling, sweet one, shared here*

In it, they look at each other "that way". Could it be a sign of spring in a big city.

Such a precious moment, captured in such a brilliant photo!!! It's another cinematic scene you've managed to capture with that 'standard' Fujinon. Well done my friend!

Great catch Hugo !!

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

They have that magic magnetic closeness that is far more intense than just a physical presence. That magical moment has been perfectly captured.

Nitin from Shanghai, China

He looks rather young to be her father :) Superb shot Hugo! You're almost like the 'sartorialist' of the East - rather than fashion you capture pictures of real people, real moments and real expressions. Not in what they wear on their body - but what they wear on their faces and minds and their hearts. Excellent picture.

Excellent shot! This is so sweet. I love your light and b/w and the moment you captured, always full of so much humanity and heart.

Punit from Somewhere in, India

This is a wonderful shot - the expression so sweet - the moment so right. But I also love your mastery with the lines that is trademark Hugo for me - the lines of the pavement - the way they bring the attention to the main subject.

Bill from hk, Hong Kong

"He looks rather young to be her father :) "
Thx. i am not young.
Actually, we were talking about which PS3 game we should play later back home, not borrowing my camera.
In fact, her shots are not bad using mobile camera too.

@Bill: Oh Bill, I have missed your comments. How wonderful of you to stop by and make this complete!!! Thank you so much and sorry for my late reply!:-)
