The good, the bad, the ugly... this is 'Hong Kong' to me.

Belcher's Street, Hong Kong

Another cityscape that has stunned me... "the masterpiece"

FUJIFILM X-E1 1/280 second F/5.0 ISO 400 53 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...

It's this mix that gives Hong Kong its charm in my view. I love the old buildings as well as the new. A wonderful, mesmerizing image, Hugo. A perfect touch of pink laundry in the background.

Very mesmerising Hugo, much like the old walled city eh?
All of those repetitive patterns and awesome greyness interrupted only by the strategically placed splash of pink!
Have a really good Christmas my friend.

This is a great composition. Often a simple image works best; occasionally, a busy one is outstanding, like this one. Love the title too.

Lego ! I never had so many !
Very acutely framed. And that is a great art, too, to frame to exactly what's necessary, while retaining a balance.
