"it takes two..."

... yet two do not always make it.

The Larger view

Spring Garden Lane, Wanchai, Hong Kong

FUJIFILM X-E1 1/40 second F/3.6 ISO 320 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...

"One can have a dream, baby / Two can make that dream so real". Wonderfully composed & the colors are so rich how they appear on the screen here, it's a great duet too : Greenish & Blueish, it sure takes 2 (plus I'm a fan of [url=]Marvin, so double thanks ;)

Went to see the larger view : enjoying even more there the "T" the black parts draw. "T" for 2, of course ;)

Longroute from Cagliari, Italy

Indeed this is a "memorable scene" and a very good composition too. The intensity of the colours is stunning and the horizontal shadow produces a graphic effect but it's the presence of the two people who makes the photo. well seen and well captured.

Spectacular image! The color and light is just amazing! I love how they are alone in their own worlds but also together. Just beautiful!

Mowgli from Nice, France

Superbe! Ce dégradé de tonalté verte. Ces ombres, cette lumière. Ce graphisme, avec toutes ces lignes horizontales et verticales et bien sur ces 2 "présences" avec leur attitude réciproques si bien saisies.

Basile Pesso from Barcelona, Spain

I hadn't seen this photo before posting mine of today, but the mink is obvious to me.
It's spotlightable and wonderfully composed, framed and exposed.
The scene, the passing from one kind of green to another, the inscription, the graphics. Wonderful !

Amazing timing to capture these two figures each in their solitary space. Colour and composition make this a very compelling image, Hugo.
