Two chairs, back to back, beside a window.

Sitting in Browns, waiting for the third breakfast of the long morning – a repast which might have equated to what we Brits call Elevenses, except that it was just after ten.

I always sit at any table that looks across the room towards the windows onto the street, because these provide good cross- and backlighting.

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.

    I like that subdued, elegant atmosphere. We had a very nice time the other day, BTW, with a certain O. & P. They are so generous!!

      Subdued and elegant is what that eatery is, its not until I wave fistfuls of money at them that I’m even allowed in … 😉 …

      I am very glad that you’ve met up with my friends – yes, they are lovely people, really good people. Can you drop me a short email and let me know how things went – did they have any useful info for you? I do hope so. A 🙂

    I love how the slivers of light reveals the texture of the chair fabric.


    • Adrian Lewis says:

      Yes, the fabric was what I focused on, its focused on the right but slightly out on the left, and I think this little bit of focus is helpful. Glad you like it, Marie. Adrian 🙂

    Yea, classy, striking photo. I love it, well spotted the potential in what few would have noticed.


  4. Meanderer says:

    I like it! There’s something a little ‘Mrs Robinson’ about it 🙂

    What a find that was, Adrian!

    I really like this a lot Adrian. I’m beginning to appreciate the potential for good images in chairs – structure, shape, texture… You may see your influence in some of my future posts!

      Well, be my guest! And thank you for your good words. I find that sitting in eateries(!) waiting for the food to arrive gives me a very good chance to really look around at things – and as I say above, I try to sit where I can see back- or sidelighting. Cars are another case in point – its possible to move around them, seeing how the interaction of the light with their bodywork changes. A 🙂
