"wellcome" "late night tram"

Another long night, yet a lovely night scene like this is quite a reward... Just hope you enjoy the mood as much as I do.:-)

A few more glimpses of:

"the tram road by night (i)"

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 like the person looking the scene at the window on the left

The street has become quiet at this time, we can enjoy much better the language of the city.

I like the rails, the perspective offered here, i can hear this image, also its silence at that late hour when so few people are out (but Hugo always, with his Fuji in the pocket, ready to.... Click ! And this too, I can hear it). Atmosphere is so pregnant here... and the guy up there at his window is another focus to echo yours !

@k@: Yes, so beautifully silent except the sounds of the trams - "ding ding" - the double bell ring trams use to warn pedestrians of their approach... Oh regarding the guy, I had a feeling that he's actually watching that crazy guy standing at the mid of the tram lane.:-) Have a nice day k@!

Karine/k@ has said it all for me and I was going to add the significance of the figure top-left . . but she said that, too, and better than I could !

@Ronnie 2¢: He must be pretty disappointed that I wasn't run over by the tram!:-)))

The atmospheric photo draws me in and I find it difficult to pull back to reality of a cold gray morning in Devon. Your photos are magical Hugo 5* (this one is one of my favourites)

The perspective is beautiful. I seem to believe this was on of those late nights you were walking around with the camera and were able to catch that stunning almost quiet feel in your image that I like a lot ! Perfect title !
