STILL LIFE 50 – TWO BOLLARDS BESIDE A CAR (MONO + COLOUR)

Two bollards beside a parked car; Welsh Back, central Bristol, 5 August 2016.

Or two little people, with bright, tanned faces and circular hats.  One comes closer for a better look at me, the other, more unsure, hangs back.

The nearer bollard is the only sharp thing in the shot, and is separated from the rest of the shot by virtue of that.  Moving slightly to the left had the effect of surrounding the more distant bollard with the pale and far out of focus backdrop, so preventing it from merging with the car’s dark bulk.

X-T1 with 55-200 Fujinon at 305mm (equiv); 1600 ISO; Silver Efex Pro 2, including selective restoration of colour.

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. Yes, very well seen.
    I see that this photo is taken August 5, the same day my mom passed away.

      August 5 will never be the same for you again, my friend, it has ceased to be “just another day”. In the years to come, I very much hope that it will not be a day of profound grief for you but, rather, a day of warm memories and peaceful contemplation. A
