Getting closer.

Rooftop of Lebua, Bangkok

From my recent business trip to Bangkok in August.

FUJIFILM X-Pro1 1/300 second F/2.8 ISO 800 53 mm (35mm equiv.)

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...

Cool, the silhouette is fading little by in the dark part of the picture.
I love the discrete string of lights of the busy boulevard as a beautiful counterpoint to the silhouette.

The sky on the bottom left is incredible, and the city traffic and lights are superb.

I love that feeling of being the "king of the castle" surveying my lands, it helps you to wonder about the jobs done by people working at such high levels. The higher the floor, the greater the power?
Lovely scene Hugo.

A wonderful moody image. The relaxing feeling of this warm light is tangible in this so well structured image. The composition is magnificent, Hugo.

I love the line of cars, their lights like tiny fruits down there, and the faded mandarina tones as the man is in contemplation of Beauty, his head hold by another concrete line. Pure ! Have a great week, dear Hugo*

Hi Hugo, hope you are well, this is great I love the DOF experience with the slightly blurred figure and sharp city skyline

Punit from Pune, India

Curly's comment is spot on - the subject feels like king of the lands here - esp with the entire city appearing small in front of him and the vast golden skies.
The DoF is the true magic here. Well done!

Your camera did a good job with the light recording all the details. A nice silhouette also.

A beautiful sunset and now the mysterious figure. A secret agent, perhaps. ;-)

The golden afterglow is so wonderfully captured & the silhouetted figure completes the mood of a day that is spent in the anticipation of the night yet to unfold...a magical image dear Hugo!
