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...

What a peaceful vista to enter the New Year ! I join you here Hugo (I would love to be able to jump into my screen right now) and wish you that strolling attentive eye the whole year long, with less burden of work if possible and more freedom in your life, a lot to fish (and you have two poles here to achieve it) and a lot to erect, at your own pace, since i do believe in Time that is everything, patience & confidence to accompany and yes, humble grateful presences - ours. May the new year (waiting for Feb. 10th snaky year for the Chinese, correct ? ;) brings you what you miss (and that you already have deep inside yourself for sure ;) Peace, my precious friend, and much love k xox

@k@: Thank you so much k@! This was taken last Friday... a very lovely afternoon even if the sky wasn't that blue and clouds that white! Here are a few more (touristy:-)) snapshots I would love to share with you:

"star ferry"


"a tale of two skyscrapers"

"victoria harbour at dusk"

Oh yes, 10 Feb is the First Day of the Year of Snake and I already have a feeling that it's gonna be a more enjoyable year after some tough years for me... remember the cycle hypothesis, ha ha!:-)
