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.

    Love this, Adrian. It captures a sort of loneliness of man out walking his dog. The sense of solitude comes across – enhanced by the thick fog. A good time to just be. I used to enjoy the early morning walk across empty fields with my dog. A good start to a busy day.

    I love the wonderful strong silhouette, too.

    All the best for today.

      M, thank you for those good wishes. Yesterday went alright, although trying to get out of Newbury at the height of the evening rush hour was, shall we say, exciting!

      Thanks for saying good things about the picture – I never knew you were a dog owner. I saw a much loved cat yesterday but, not beating about the bush, she was more interested in a bowl of food for much of the time than she was in me!

      Yes, solitude, and “a good time just to be” – very well put. A

    I love the way the fog plays a part in this photo. It definitely adds to the image. Now assuming I got it rite. Because it also looks that you could develop the the image this way. Either way it’s great

      Sheldon, thank you very much for your good thoughts! Yes, the image certainly could have been processed to give these foggy effects, but the fog is most definitely real! Aside from presenting the scene in black and white, the only “artistic licence” that I have used is to darken the sky towards the top of the frame, which enhances the image’s mood significantly – by giving more of an impression of the pair walking off into the unknown perhaps.

      Well you know that effect is everything when it comes to an image. It’s that kick that takes it to the edge. The ordinary to the extraordinary. I work with this idea in all my pieces. This is what I saw in this one

    Fog is such a difficult subject to photograph but I think you’ve done a really good job here, Adrian. And this shot has that sense of tension and the walking into the unknown.

    We can’t see where he’s going, but he can see past where he is, when we get to where he is, maybe we’ll see him where he’s gone. 🙂

      I love this, Hallysann, I positively love the great mass of wonder and wondering between your ears that enables you to often come out with such projectile musings – you make me smile and you positively enhance my days! 🙂

      The problem is, I didn’t follow him, so I never got to where he was, and even if I had then I might not have been able to see where I’d been, and so would have been lost for the second time that day … tho not as lost … it has to be said … as I was after reading your comment .. for the first time ,,, 🙂 ….

    A superb image Adrian. The man and his dog walking into the fog, which can perhaps be seen as ‘nothingness’, produces a very evocative image. I like this one a lot.
