The cemetery wall 2
The cemetery wall at Stanton Drew, in the Chew Valley, near Bristol; 22 Oct 2014.

A rough, strong and very gritty wall, separating the quiet and reflective spirituality of the churchyard from the very busy and active farm next door.

And that very busy and alive world next door has not quite been able to contain itself, such that it has felt quite unable to resist sending the upper parts a shrub, gaily laden with colourful berries, up over the top of the gritty wall into the sepulchral quietudes beyond.

There is another black and white picture of this wall here.

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. I like the processing and the contrast between the quite harsh monochrome of the wall with the lovely orange berries. It looks superb in the large image.

      M, thank you very much – yes, these larger images often work ok, don’t they, I intend carrying on using them. But I don’t know you – I wouldn’t have thought this image would be your cup of (fruit) tea!

      Off to the nurse soon … spurting blood and screaming agony … and I won’t be feeling too good either …. 🙂 …..


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