About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

  2. Absolute great use of the wide angle here. But I am more impressed with the stark contrast you found. Without that deep black cutting through the photo, this would be a totally different photo. This is testament how a simple element can transform a scene. Thanks for sharing, Adrian.

    Very strong and striking image. I like the optical illusion of the cobbles looking as if they are fanning out – like spokes on a wheel.

      Glad it gets to you, M, thank you! I think the fanning out effect is due to the wideangle lens – and what an incredible lens that was – small, light and ideal for getting into tight shooting angles with >>> the sorts of tight angles that I was talking about earlier this week, those that increasing age and decreasing flexibility are making it harder for me to get to! 🙂
