PS. My free time is being encroached by my day jobs lately. Yet this has not stopped me from photographing the interesting scenes I come across everyday. What is more, I've found just a way that I can keep 'processing' all the pics taken, almost anytime and anywhere - with my 'smartphone' and apps like the Instagram.:-)

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...

Great capture Hugo!
Now Instagram is on Android, it means 'the rest of us' can join the ever popular game of social phonography.

R2D2 talks aloud, fun shot & pp with that very In-vogue Instagram (i don't use it but seems cool), enjoy !

26 Nov 2012 6:43pm

@k@: I must add that I'm not a particular fan of the 'digital filters' of the Instagram - IMO, they're always over-processing the images (the 'square format' is lovely though)... However, I've got so many images that I wish to share and thanks to this "smart" media, I could do it now almost anytime anywhere whenever I have the opportunity despite my demanding day jobs.:-)
