"永遠不出來 (buried forever)"

Daydreaming on a mini-bus, wakened and captured by a beautiful face...

Old Baily Street, Central, Hong Kong

FUJIFILM X-E1 1/120 second F/3.8 ISO 640 123 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

It's mysterious to me, but it seems a serious graffiti, like a memorial?

Gérard Beullac from Paris, France

I love the image with the blurry side of the bus window in the below.
By using a hackneyed cliché, I would say: very cinematographic !

When the viewer is left asking all sorts of questions about the image, then you know that the artist (and the photographer) have done a good job. You probably experienced this as you looked out of the window, and through your recording of this intimate (yet public) scene, you have managed to transmit the same questioning attitude to your viewers too.
I probably had the same thoughts as Francisco, but you never know, there may be something more cryptic at work here.

Amazingly powerful shot from this passing moment . . somehow, the thoughts linger on way after the moment is long gone.

Nice, is there a lot of street art in Hong Kong? I don´t remember seeing that much but it was a long time since I was there.

I don't know who she is and why she's there but I like the graphism. (:-)

mon regard se pose partout où je me demande si c'est une guerrière....

Francisco Romero from Carbajal de la Legua, Spain

The veil that encompasses the image creates a wonderful atmosphere that makes the phrase be more in context. It seems as taken while passing by. Fantastic work.

Great artwork. Great find Hugo.

k@ from Paris, France

She's gorgeous and the haze-like feel adds to the romantism of the scene in your eye from far & close, it seems, the stickers, the wall, nothing succeeds to emprison her, or is it that you free her with a wink/click !
