Business failure
Whitewashed windows on a closed down business in Corn Street, in the city centre; 27 May 2015.

Canon G11 PowerShot at 37mm (equivalent); 200 ISO; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Architectural preset and selectively restoring colour; a little final softening via Color Efex Pro 4.

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.

    absolutely stunning.


  2. Meanderer says:

    There’s quite a poignancy about this image: the sadness of the whitewashed window; the tint you have chosen; the angle; the beauty of the window which no longer enables a view through to the inside.

    Super image, Adrian.

    Whitewashed windows – you don’t see that so often these days. But when you do, there can be some lovely swirls and sweeps of white across the frames. Just as there is here.

    It’s sad that the business, like so many recently has failed, but that said, is is a beautiful window.
    I’m guessing that at sometime you would have seen the wares on sale behind the glass, but since I didn’t see the shop open my mind doesn’t have to play with what I know, just what I imagine.
    The window shouts “Olde” at me, maybe an olde sweet shop with rows and rows of jars of sweets on shelves around the walls?
    Or what about a Tea-room, with miss-matched cups and saucers and homemade cakes and scones served on pretty little plates?
    A furniture shop with antique wardrobes and dressing tables?
    Or better still maybe we should ask Harry Potter if Ollivandars is in need of new premises? 🙂

      Again, I love your imagination, Oh Nutty Friend – but with Things Harry Potter you’ve left me completely behind, no idea about that gentleman at all at all at all. But I do love Miss-Matched – tell me, was she the daughter of Mr Happy and Mrs Sad??? 😀

        What no Harry Potter ?!?!?!
        Let me enlighten you slightly…
        In a little back alley in London, only accessed I believe through the back door of dingy old pub, is a row of olde worlde type magic shops selling everything a magical Hogarth scholar would need.
        One such shop was Ollivandars, owned by a thin scrawny looking gentlemen who sold wands, wouldn’t it be great to have a wand shop almost on your doorstep.


        • Adrian Lewis says:

          No, no Harry Potter here >>> but delve into Lord of the Rings and you’ll have my rapt attention. A wand shop almost on my doorstep? Reminds me of a brain surgeon I took on safari long, long ago – “Don’t know which I’d rather have, a frontal lobotomy or a bottle in front of me” …. 🙂

    As I said before… The motifs are everywhere. Well seen and very well captured!

    Yes..a sign of the time, only the strong survive. Attractive photo and well processed.


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