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...

She (he ?) doesn't seem to find the situation so funny !
A good smile for this morning.

I'm having a great laugh with this one!
Reminds of that game that you play with children, they stick a note on your brow with the name of a character on it, you can only ask twenty questions that demand yes or no answers, until you guess who "you" are. :-)

Fabulous stark contrast between the seemingly worried person and the funny and relaxed graffiti. Excellent scene captured, Hugo.

looks like there's so much going on in this picture, then you realise it's the painting. Your timing is perfect here in making us believe that the kids in the picture are reacting to the lady
