The colour version

The Sukhothai Bangkok

From my recent business trip to Bangkok in August.

SAMSUNG GT-I9300 1/17 second F/2.6 ISO 400 4 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...

k@ from Paris, France

I love the triangles in triangles in triangles here and the man escaping the web with such a cool attitude (one hand in the pocket ?). Pure lighting and perfect position (yours), a pleasure to see you back hoping you'll have time to rest now, dear. Such a perfect shot that is a fab echo to Sharon's !

@k@: Couldn't quite recall if he's actually entering or leaving... but won't forget how I was captivated by the sight and determined to get a shot even if a cellphone was all I had that very moment! Glad the shot came out alright.:-) Oh Sharon's is such a powerful shot! Thanks k@!

I like this picture, this man escaping a cold and impersonal world. I saw yesterday night the colored version and I thought that it would be perhaps better in BW. and there it is !

Basile Pesso from City of Aminus, Paris, France

Magnificent !
You've made the good choice, the color one is very good but this one is even better, I think.

I prefer this black and white version, it appears more graphic and clinical.

Great perspective and beautiful b& w.
PS (copy and paste): I am hospitalized for 8/10 days and I do not know when I could be operational to key in... On the other hand I hope to be enough in good shape to read you (Franck will help me there!) so I have uploaded a photo every 2 days. Then do not hesitate to visit me, it will be again of a big support in this second time of trouble. Thank you in advance to all, kisses and see you soon :-)
