STANTON DREW 32 – WHITE HOUSE WITH WINDOW BOX

Stanton Drew village, south of Bristol; 7 June 2016.

A humid day and, due to the heavy, stifling overcast, a day with few shadows.  I walked gratefully away from the village’s single, narrow road – always glad to be able to concentrate on taking in my surroundings without wondering if I’m about to be mown down by some hurtling mass of motorised metal.

The clucking and scraping of chickens sounded momentarily loud in the sudden quiet, a sign proclaimed eggs for sale and, looking back over my shoulder – something which I often find useful – there was this white house with a dark window and a colourful window box, partly obscured by the branches of an overhanging tree.

But the overhanging greenery looked good against the black and white chequerboard of the window with its colourfully boxed posy, so I focused on the tree’s leaves and left the rest to look after itself.

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 village is really quite small, with a busy narrow road through it, but smaller, dead end roads off the main road are wonderfully tranquil – there is a farmyard and a very quiet churchyard at the end of one of these roads, while the other leads to fields containing Stone Age stone circles – its a wonderful place, and really just down the road from us.

      Yes, the humidity is getting to me too, esp re sleeping – but I think the weekend will bring something fresher. Glad you like the pic – I’m enjoying the X-T1, feeling more and more at one with it. A xxx
