Inside St Nicholas Market; central Bristol, 6 June 2013.

Calm and still; Minimalist maybe, although there is quite a lot of detail here.

This picture of a grey-walled room was taken looking into the room through a window.  The faint lines running near horizontally across the frame are reflections in that window.

Click onto the image to open a larger version in a separate window.

Canon G11 PowerShot at 140mm (35mm equivalent); 800 ISO.

UPDATE: we are looking through a window into a place, a room with grey walls.  And we are looking through this room out to another place, a corridor with blue walls.  On the far side of this corridor is a window onto yet another, largely unseen, place – and in this window is a painting or photograph, a representation of clouds in a blue sky maybe, a representation of somewhere else completely.

I think that the pale blue colour helps this image, as do the pink outside frames to the nearest (visible) window.  Change that blue to grey, and remove that pink too, and something would be lost.


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.

    You must have considered a monochrome rendering, but I’m sure I’d still like this version more. The pastels are very subtle, inviting, and intriguing.

      Yes, I think that presentation in mono would rob this of a lot, it would become a very different photo, based on rectilinear shapes and a few shadows – the blue here, in particular, makes this something else entirely. Thanks for your thoughts, my friend. 🙂

    Interesting and intriguing photo. I like it.


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