The Larger view and an alternative version.:-)

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...

A good panoramic and a funny writing on the sky ;)

It is a pretty special window view Hugo and the etched wording gives it a surreal quality when blended with the wet and damp weather. Clever and creative thinking behind this one (I very much liked the focus on the raindrops and bokeh in the alternative picture).

k@ from Paris, France

Like a legend written right over the image, i like this natural juxtaposition that says a lot, due to the word itself and the view. Like the title of the movie you present, the novel we open. The sensation to be in a train too.
Enjoy your w-e, my dear*
