"if you're tired..."

"... take a break. But don't stop, you only stop when you're done."

Murray Road, Central, Hong Kong

So I'm not intending to stop, just taking a break... Wish to be back soon. Take care everyone!

FUJIFILM X-E1 1/2700 second F/1.6 ISO 200 35 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...

Toute en subjectivité cette image, splendide composition. Bonne journée. *****

This very good blurry picture seems to be a dedication. The link doesn't work for me so I don't know who it is related to. Would you tell us ?

@Basile Pesso: If that doesn't work for you, I should congratulate you - it means you're not feeling that exhaustion that I have been experiencing lately... How I envy that man his having such a sweet nap in the mid of the day!

Perfect focus for me (I have broken my glasses) :)
It is a very nice idea and we don't know if the dream is real.
Kind regards

The red presences try to wake him up but he sure needs a good rest beforehand. "If you retire", take all the time you need. Greatly expressed in your off focus choice, Hugo !

@k@: Thank you k@! Being torn between my day jobs, found it difficult to manage various photo sites at the same time... would still try to keep updating "my flickr".:-)

Kate from EXETER, United Kingdom

I love the soft focus ... just like tired eyes ( I wish you rest my friend and new vigor )
