About Adrian Lewis
Photographer - using mono, colour and combinations of the two - many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous, trying new ideas, working in multiple genres. And I've a weakness for Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

  2. Amazing shot, curious how it would look like in colour allthough the mono version is fantastic!

      Thanks, Joanna, much appreciated! I do have a colour version as its a digital shot and I’ll post it sometime – but I’m quite a mono fan, can’t get enough of it – especially using Silver Efex Pro 2, and I think I’m doing more mono than colour at the moment. I’m also rather Minimalist and so like images to be at least fairly simple – and mono also helps isolate the squirrel from its surroundings. Thanks for your kind words. Adrian

      Thanks, Meanderer! It was perched on top of a pole, so I was able to throw the background completely out of focus. In fact these animals are so agile that they climb up all over the house – we’ve had them peering in the upstairs windows! Adrian

      Thanks, Gary – we like them too, but on this side of The Pond they’ve really pushed our native Red Squirrel out. But we have Greys in the garden and are always glad to see them – and our neighbours have taught them to come into their house for food – they hide a nut in a shirt pocket, and let the squirrel clamber all over them trying to find it! Thanks again. Adrian
