"love... boat"

Stanley Bay, Stanley, Hong Kong

FUJIFILM X-E1 1/2400 second F/5.6 ISO 200 53 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...

I checked you lour love boat image and it is absolutely amazing, it has whispers of love and calm notes to it and also narrates a story, it lets the mind wander. In this image, I love the title, it's open to interpretation, she waits for a lover or perhaps to start a journey to somewhere else. It's also really reflective and in b&w, I love it !
