STILL LIFE 67 – GANGPLANK

Safety ropes on the gangplank of a floating restaurant; Bristol Bridge, central Bristol; 16 Sept 2016.

These undulating ropes, set against the shadow of the ship’s side, were eye-catching.  I tried taking the image into black and white and then restoring the ropes’ colours, but actually a straight colour version does rather better.

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.

    That’s great, Adrian – so vivid I can almost touch the ropes. The colour version was definitely the right choice.

      • Bonjour Adrian, mon dimanche sera bon. J’espère que ton dimanche sera bon. You make efforts to write French better and it’s not so easy for an English speaker. I won’t claim my English is excellent.
        Have a nice Sunday.

          Well, actually, I have always liked French and, especially, I love hearing it spoken by native French speakers, I think it sounds very beautiful. I enjoy trying to put my words to you into French, it is a challenge and I enjoy doing it.

          I learnt French in primary school from the age of 7 to 11; then, at 11, I went to secondary school and learnt French all over again, up to the age of 16. And then I have travelled in France from time to time, and spent several months working on geology in the Alps, near Briancon – so my French came in very useful – as it did when I visited Rwanda, in Africa, which I think used to be a French or Belgian colony.

          You English is GOOD – hahaha! >>> far better than my French!!! It is a great pleasure to talk to you. 😀
