the wait... (ii)

Sometimes you wait and wait and wait, but when it arrives...

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...

Zoom this up and be amazed at how much detail is retained in the highlight areas!

The smothering heat of the skyscrapers city is something inescapable, but when you find the shelter of a wall you feel like going back to a cool caverns age. Even in our modern times, it could be a good way for waiting the crowded bus.

Superb light and framing. You have constructed a strong visual line among the man and the sign.

I hate waiting. I think this guy does, too.

I love the signs, pointing (suggesting) the way... life has so many choices to contemplate, as this waiting man seems to be doing. Your photography is fabulous, full of speculative narration.
