Another fun (stunt) handheld shot... have to admit that my heart is still trembling!:-) Do view the Larger.

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 wears her golden dress, one arm armed with night light, a spider and a snake as well. The angle is complex and rich, our eyes blink and look for meanings, find a lot, and a lot of questions too. Are we those architects of that complexity ? Yes. And are we also the ones who'll get trap in ? Sure. The predator and the prey. Both luminous with a golden heart. One of your most intricated thought-provoking enigma-pic ! Thanks for awakening my brain at 7.17am in Paris, Hug_° !

A daring and dizzying feat of photography Hugo. I am a bit fascinated with the names of these roads, as it seems they may have evolved overtime from more humble beginnings to their ultra modern day appearances.

Nitin from Shanghai, China

Now this is again scintillating stuff. Just what I was hoping to see - glowing roads and such a perfect pov for that. Lovely picture Hugo!
