"21:53" ... on the bus (iii)

Posted by hugo poon (hong kong, Hong Kong) on 1 May 2012 in Transportation and Portfolio.

During the half an hour or so journey, the man in front of me kept "showing" me his watch and the time, seemed like reminding me it's another long day that we had worked from nine to nine again!

Have a great Labour Day!

Wanchai Road, Hong Kong

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...

Pavan Kaul from Mumbai, India

Such a fabulous capture my friend! The colors, detail, exposure and bokeh are all just outstanding!

BTW, I have been wanting to pick up this wonderful little camera for some time now Hugo, but Fuji is not very well present in India and I have been most frustratingly, unable to find any dealer who could get me one:(

@Pavan Kaul: Oh Pavan, how about coming to HK? I'll get you one, I promise... it'll be wonderful if we can finally meet up!:-)

I guess another fading epoch in wearing a wristwatch ? I still do but they say I am fading past !

Yes, time seems ever present in our work day lives! I love the blues in your image today Hugo... beautifully seen, as always, and so thoughtful and intelligent.

Sounds like a plan Hugo! Okay, at this time I can't say when, but I certainly will make it there. That's a promise:) It'll be wonderful to meet up with you in person!

Maybe he wanted to impress you with the quality of his watch?

Wonderful framing and idea for Labor Day, ah Time and work... You are brave and also exhausted i guess, we can feel it through the man gesture, trying to relax - but i love the idea of you, even at that late hour, clicking your super Fuji anyway.
How i'd love to come & meet up with Pavan & you....... but from France, that will probably remain like a draam, but a lovely one, dear you t°° ;) I'm so happy you both could meet up for real, two great souls of Am3. "See you", guys...

2 May 2012 5:29am

@k@: Oh it happened to be one of the most laborous months and years... exhausted? Abolutely but only physically!:-) Likewise, don't be unhappy if we couldn't meet up cause this is only physical and temporary! I feel like being together and talking to such real friends as you all the time... "see you" in the (day)dream!:-)

k@ from Paris, France

Ditto xoxoxox ;)

Wonderful, Hugo! The essence of a long tiring day, captured so very well. Karine's comments (as is the case most of the times) describes it so very well.
I just love looking at your photographs and then hunting for Karine's comment on the page - looking at your fantastic photographs and then reading beautiful descriptions on them coming from K@ is sheer joy!

5 May 2012 4:17am

@Punit: Couldn't agree more... so very often k@'s beautiful words make me like the pics even more!:-) Thank you my friend!

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom
