When the day is blossoming into a splendid night...:-)

Harcourt Road, Central, Hong Kong

FUJIFILM X-E1 1/30 second F/3.6 ISO 800 18 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...

Gérard Beullac from Paris, France

Really good analogy.
it will be a beautiful day !

great composition with the verticals opposite to the horizontals : bus and bridge.
The bus is really at the right place to equilibrate the photo.

Great compo, point of view and "presence" of the street lamp on the foreground.

Stunning blue pre-night mood, composition and POV.
Many things here, between the army of floor lamps, a tower, perfectly placed.
Other ones on the left, and things at the bottom.
Spotlightable !
