time to go home...

Causeway Bay Typhoon Shelter, Hong Kong

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...

Between day and night, between dog and wolf, as we say by here.
Beautiful mood, enlightened by the reflections on the dark water.

Fabulous cinematic composition, I love your use of the reflections as a lead in, and the clean sky is such a good contrast to the busy building!
Are we looking towards the typhoon shelter, or are you shooting from it Hugo?

Incredible mood and the fact that the reflections of the lights in the water are stronger than the real lights on the buildings.
