Happy ST!:-)

And the "night game"

Old Peak Road, Hong Kong

FUJIFILM X-E1 1/27 second F/2.8 ISO 1600 41 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...

What a dive ! Love the yellowish hue along with the exceptional & unexpected as well red cars, seem toys you have here (cabs ? oh yes, the title !) and the intertwined roads from this vertiginous vantage point is a cracker for sure ! Arrow and signs on the roads are gems too - one of your (numerous) grand images, my dear Hugo !

@k@: Every time I watch this, I'll be reminded of the silly (crazy) thing I did to get this handheld shot... my heart is still shivering!:-)

Hans ter Horst from Dippach, Luxembourg

Great shot! What an amazing viewpoint!

Gérard Beullac from Paris, France

Fantastic ! When I was a child I enjoyed a lot building ways for my little cars with a lot of inextricable curl crossing the some by top the others.
That said, I admire the top quality of your picture, the perfect lighting of the scene.
The tiny red and white cars are absolutely irresistible !

@Gérard Beullac: Irresistible... absolutely! Happy ST!:-)

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Fantastic, what a stunner!
This looks more and more like a board game as I look at it, or perhaps a version of "Crazy Taxi", perhaps it's the flat downward view which promotes these feelings - I've thrown a six, do I get another turn?

16 Jul 2013 8:37am

@Curly: "Crazy Taxi"!!!:-)

Haha I guess with so many we're spoiled for choice :) I love the meandering of the roads and your super real pov, makes me feel like you were hanging over a balcony way up where to get this shot! And it kind of looks like a perfect little doll house, once again I love your light management!
