STILL LIFE 116 – GATE OF A BUSINESS PROPERTY

 

 


.
The old and battered gate of a business property; St Thomas Street, central Bristol.

A bluish grey sheet of wood has been attached to the inside of the metal gate, to further deter intruders.  And a piece of wood or metal, painted orange, has been placed on top of the bluish grey sheet, perhaps to further strengthen it or to cover a disused keyhole.  The whole now becomes an abstract design, with a vivid Lightroom film simulation exaggerating the colours and contrast.

Click onto the image to open a larger version in a separate window, and click onto that image to enlarge it yet again.

Technique: X-T2 with 55-200 Fujinon lens at 305mm (equiv); 800 ISO; Lightroom, using the Velvia/Vivid film simulation; 19 May 2017.

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.

    Not reading your explanation but just reacting to my gut feeling: I love it!! Looks like a mystical jail where the almost dead go to die with a light soul and love in their hearts!.
