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...

I see him very well and this diving bird eye is so excellent to let us enjoy both his nap and the fascinating architecture of the small world he is totally intricated in. Geez, those concrete lines crossing up & down, happily some green surrounds him, we are living too much within stone and too far from Nature, as we can see here (and at my place the same way), one would dream of some wings to escape all this and fly in a free sky, who knows if it's not the dream he's having right now - love this pose, so cinematic is your eye, Hugo, you could have been a super director in the movie bizzzz ! Hugs & thanks for this slice of XXIth century life !

Took me a while to see him as he is so lost in the machine of the world here . .

He's not going to get much of a tan in that suit! :-)
Well observed Hugo.

Bettina from Los Angeles, United States

That's fantastic! I love not only the hidden sunbather, but also the way the picture is cut in half. It almost looks like an optical illusion. Fabulous work as always!

I love the composition of this photo! It's always so interesting to see things from points of view not intended.

Nitin from Shanghai, China

Another incredible picture from an inspiring person. Such a great composition - such a fine shot. The geometry amazes me. Great street shot. Would be really interesting to have exactly the same shot at night! :) Cheers Hugo!

Once again, your fabulous eye for things most would never see, let alone capture so beautifully in terms of composition, viewpoint and detail! Brilliant shot dear Hugo:))

Very good cut in two sight, with the detail of the man leaning.

Hard to see at first, but I think that might be the Manager lying there... :0

You are the spy-eye in the sky Hugo.

Doug Hickok from Charleston, South Carolina, United States

Brilliant division of space within the frame Hugo. Much detail to enjoy here, but the subtle appearance of the reclining man really accentuates the overall design and concept of the image. Excellent and intriguing work as always!

What a great find Hugo! I love the 50/50 split - two worlds.
