Darkness and fear, in a backstreet – made all the more fearful by a fat stranger with a little camera, half seen but already dreadful (well, it is a Canon, after all), in the shadows.

A doorway ahead, a means of escape.

But this doorway is not just dark, it’s black, leaving total uncertainty as to who – or what – waits within.

So, the question,  as the stranger drags himself, breathing heavily, ever closer.  To pass from fear into … uncertainty … ?

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.

    A fat stranger… I wonder who that could be? 😉 Anyway, great photo.


    • Adrian Lewis says:

      Who can it be? Well, it can’t be me, I’ve lost so much weight (mainly cranially of course) that when I turn sideways on in the street, people look at me and ask “Why is that man turning sideways on in the street?”. Of course I can deal with celebrity status.

      And I do love your hairdryer picture – in which that’s really quite a direct stare – and I see more of them to look at later too. Take good care of yourself, you are a pretty unique person. A

    Keep going to the streetlamp in the near distance shining it’s light on the wall…
    And then wait… If I know anything about this stranger out with his canon after dark, he’s not as fearful as he would like you to think, there’s a good chance he will have a warm flask and a sandwich to share with you, and if not, then I’ll be betting he knows a good place to sit in the warm for a good meal and some good conversation. 😊


  3. love the narrative too!


  4. You crack me up Adrian 😉

    Love it , Adrian both for the photo and the symbolism it represents.

      Thought you might like this – I suppose that, in a way and slightly, I’m trying to emulate you and Malin, tho with less success I think. Oh by the by, should you have a Waitrose near you, you might take a peek in and see if they’re selling Westmalle Dubbel beer – very highly recommended – they have apparently huge masses of it at a W near us.
