ARCHIVE 327 – THE THREE KINGS ARRIVE IN THE WRAITHS’ CITY (MONO + COLOUR)

 

 


.

FANTASY: three tall kings, resplendent in richly coloured robes, enter the spectral city of the Wraiths.  I’m influenced by Tolkien’s Lord Of The Rings perhaps – not perhaps >>> most certainly!!!  These three are in Tolkien’s Minas Morgul, the city of his Ringwraiths, walking into its deathly glow.

REALITY: three furled sun umbarellas and an old streetlight outside a pub in Perranporth, Cornwall; 25 Oct 2012.  The impression of robed beings was immediate.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer - using mono, colour and combinations of the two - many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous, trying new ideas, working in multiple genres. And I've a weakness for Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

      Has no idea you like such literature – have you read Lord of the Rings too? We share something there.

        Sure, indeed I read Lord of the Rings, several times. Did not want to see the film made of either, afraid to destroy the imagined scenes , although many told
        me the film was spectacular but I fear I cannot do justice to the written word.

          Yes, I really liked the LotR film trilogy and I still do. Its nowhere near perfect, but there are some very memorable moments in it – yes, spectacular in places – I’ll never forget the opening battle scene in film one – I’d been sceptical too, but within a few minutes I was pinned to my cinema seat! But, through greed, the much shorter Hobbit was also made into three films, and the first was really not good; I’ve never bothered to see the other two.
