"friday night colours" (lan kwai fong)

FUJIFILM X-E1 1/30 second F/4.5 ISO 1600 21 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...

The architecture of this building reminds me some Belgian comics in the sixties.
We see that the modern big buildings are not far and ready to take the place.

The architecture of this building is aerial in many senses, it also evokes to me waves of stones up in the air.
Superb colors & light, we do feel as walking in central Honk Kong with you Hugo. My fav of the serie is the first link with the woman with joined hands in the middle of the district, so alone and intense, a beauty ! Have a good week-end, my friend*

@k@: Yes, the light, the colours and the stylish architecture are all charming, yet the real reason I had to press the shutter is something hardly noticeable now in the shot - a beggar was actually requesting money from all the customers - you might be able to spot him if you look carefully at the shop front...... k@, wish you a lovely weekend and a happy Chinese New Year in advance!

As a small friendly village in the middle of the cold concrete city ... I love the attitude of the two girls whose eyes away!

Excellent night shot! Superb framing and light! In big cities there is often a Chinese district and here, it is the European district in Hong-Kong!:) Have a great weekend, Hugo!
