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.

    That blue really stands out…
    Tied on… no Frisbees today then, we’ll just have to be content with ruffling the top of the blue rope in passing. 🙂

      Yes, just a bit of ruffling in Stanton Drew – glad you like the blue! And how’s the sax going??? Hubby showing any indications of regret yet? Cold turkey for peace and quiet, going to go to B&Q for a garden shed, that sort of thing? 🙂

        Apparently the volume isn’t too bad when I’m shut away at the front of the house upstairs, I think it might have been a different matter if I’d have chosen the violin though. 🙂

          Don’t be shut away upstairs too much – you might become a horror movie … albeit a musical one …

          And I can well imagine a violin being dreadful – and to be quite sincere, and to stop joking around (for once), I really don’t think that a violin would be so “you” >>> as soon as I saw your post about the saxophone, it seemed to me to be the perfect instrument for you, a perfect meeting of person and instrument >>> so go for it >>> and now all we need is a selfie of you playing it >>> to protect your anonononymmmitry, and so as not to give the readers of your blog uneasy dreams, you could wear a ski mask or something like that from a Halloween clearance sale >>> I gonna book a “Like” right now!!!!! 🙂

    Very creative shot, Adrian. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and another amazing year of great photo opportunities. 🙂


    • Adrian Lewis says:

      Em, very good to hear from you – and glad you like the picture – thank you!

      And a very good Christmas to you too – tho I’m a day late! 😦

      For the coming year, I wish you a very full and complete recovery from your fracture – I very much hope that you’re soon back to your usual energetic self again. Adrian 🙂

    Nice, Adrian. I especially like that lovely sheen on the bin lid, and the way the text really stands out.

    Wishing you and your family all the very best this Christmas, Adrian.


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
