Bramble in our Bristol garden; 8 Aug 2015.

The tip of one of this invasive plant’s exploring branches, swaying innocently just above our lawn –  soft little leaves and each longing with all its heart (if leaves have hearts)  to inch further down, touch the ground and firmly take root.  In the warmer months, patrols with a stout pair of garden shears are the order of the day!

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!
