another sunset... (iii)

Posted by

Just as I was about to leave, the silhouette of a barge caught my eyes. It reminded me of some massive reclamation projects conducted nearby... the subject of the next series.

Viewing from Expo Promade, Wanchai, Hong Kong

FUJIFILM X10 1/300 second F/5.6 ISO 100 29 mm

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...

Like a machine to cut & shape the sunset, to take its size, or maybe to capture it whole and make it travel far away. The pure fire and the ironesque, like a Dantesque tale. Something again in great contrasts but always at your place in such delicacy, the very opposites on your page never fight, they just appear, side by side, to draw the sketch of an endless beautifully told world - yours. Great work your built up, step by step, dear Hugo*

The silhouette is so sharp and well defined, and the sun falling gently towards its deck makes a great frame.

Beautifully and cleverly framed sunset within the silhouette of this very graphic-looking barge, like a catapult ready to fling the glowing orb into dusk!

The sun appears to be hanging in the wires. The heavy solid barge and the vibrant energy of the sun are an arresting pair.
