Container of flowers on a pole carrying traffic signs, at the bottom of Park Street, central Bristol; 5 July 2013.

This is exactly as I visualised the result before firing the shutter – which is not that common a thing for me.  Just the silhouette of a black poll going up through a container of flowers, with some pink blooms tumbling down towards the camera.

Canon G11 PowerShot at 115mm (35mm equivalent); 100 ISO; conversion to mono in Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the High Contrast Smooth preset and selectively restoring colour.


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.

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