"i am alone but happy..."

Have a happy Tuesday, silly or not!:-)

Mass Transit Railway, Hong Kong

FUJIFILM X-E1 1/105 second F/3.5 ISO 800 87 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...

Paco Díaz from Palma de Mallorca, Spain

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Remarkably sharp with a lovely fall off in the dof, and a good fast speed at iso 800. Those little Fujis really perform!
Of course the strong basis and foundation lies within your own eye, which once again brings us the merrier sights of Hong Kong.

@Curly: Oh yes, the Fujis deserve much credit... I'm pretty happy with the shot especially cause it's taken on a moving train! Happy Tuesday Curly!
