Approaching Bristol Bridge, just after 7am.  High summer, dazzling, bright, already warm – winter might be a million miles away.  But in winter many workplaces are at least warm(ish) and dry, we are cocooned indoors; but in summer that cocoon dissolves and it is outdoors that we wish to be.

Deliberately unfocused, the blazing light biting into the silhouettes.  What is here?  Three people walk up towards the bridge, becoming progressively lost in the glare. 

On the left, the red light of a crossing tells pedestrians to wait while, beyond it, a green light calls traffic on.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for many types of subject, 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.

    I love the out of focus look here, and those two soft pops of color, very atmospheric.

    Lovely shot, right up my street so to speak! The photo tells is its own story.

    I like this: the blurriness of the figures (a little Lowryesque?) and the colour tones. Very nice, Adrian.


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