have a good night...

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...

As, we get closer than the previous one, we can understand that going home means an immersion in the city night life.
Beautiful.

Nice one, you even manage to capture a few stars in that sky. At least you are using your time profitably as you wait for the storm to come and go, and I'm so glad that it veered away from Hong Kong at the last moment.

@Curly: Thank you Curly! Usagi was supposed to be the most powerful typhoon this year and we were pretty lucky!

Is there a lot of noises over there ? I can imagine it - and guess if it's right or if silence can be heard too.
Light talks aloud here as the silent boat passes by. Great step IN the previous image, Hugo !

@k@: It's a city that never sleeps yet where I was standing was beautifully tranquil! A place I'll go whenever I need to escape from the hustle and bustle!

Now, with a darker sky, the silhouette of the boat gets a stronger focal point surrounded by those magic colors and lights. Fantastic image.
