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...

Just love how those 2 stand, her single leg is like an echo to the guitar's neck ! I love the tender feel you share here through your always tender eye, and i feel so close to the mood i could just sit & listen with my 2d foot dancing below my thigh too ;) Thanks much for the link & invitation to watch this peaceful post - this is real Xmas spirit (i'm not a fan of the period at all, i must say, so commercial, everyone rushing for useless gifts, I love Xmas for kids - I'll celebrate with my nieces tomorrow with true joy - but for grown-ups, i prefer moments like the one you offer here, and on Dec. 24th & 25th i'll be on the street sharing with unknown people), wish you the best end of 2012 possible, precious Hugo, and sweet things for you & yours with a delicious deserved rest.
