Shaw Cemetery, Newbury, Berkshire; 4 May 2016.

A distant memory: flowers, certainly past their best, against a stone that is at once weathered, mute and totally uncompromising.

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.


  1. so effective. such a sense of time gone by!


  2. You do brilliant work. Thank you.


  3. Great treatment, certainly evokes ‘distant memory’. I hope the mayoral election outcome is to your liking! 🙂

      Lisa, thank you very much! Yes, the mayoral election – OMG! – we’ll know the result tomorrow (Sat) – if the present mayor is re-elected I shall be appalled. The election turnout is apparently much increased over last (the first) time, and no one I’ve spoken to wants him to have another 5 years – living as we Brits do in a democracy (ha!, a little joke there … 😉 ), it is simply not right that an elected mayor can overrule the wishes of the councillors that the people have elected – keep your fingers crossed for Bristol tomorrow! A 🙂

    They look almost as if made of satin?, Probably not. Wonderful colour palette.


    • Adrian Lewis says:

      Looking at this again, you may well be right about the satin, Paula – but discoloured and old at least. I do like recovering colour in SEP2, it often produces results that are a little wrong – sufficient to give the general idea but just that bit “surreal”. Thanks for your thoughts, my friend. Adrian 🙂


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