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.

    Classy shot cause of the interesting angle. Great vision.

    Wow. This is beautiful. I can’t tell what it is, but it doesn’t matter. It is the color, light and curves that pull the view into the shot.

      Marie, just about when this post was being (automatically) published this morning, I did think to myself that I ought to have explained what it portrays. That’s a thing with abstracts, it is often a facet of human nature that urges us to try and find out what we are looking at – we sometimes feel uneasy if we can’t see what it is. So I do appreciate your simply liking it for what it is, without knowing what it is – beyond being some sort of chair, of course! 🙂

      But the picture is of some robust public seating, looking over part of Bristol’s waterfront. Although this often fools my eye, at least, the shiny silver uprights at the top of the frame are the seat’s back, they are concave, they are what we lean our back against. And in the lower half of the frame is the bit we actually sit on – out of focus, and catching some yellowish light. Bottom left, this part of the seat is rounded, to increase comfort for the backs of our legs when sitting.

      Do have a look at the link within the post, which takes you to another view of this seat, a view from the back, which may make things more clear. I’m very glad you enjoy this shot – thanks! Adrian 🙂

    You make this simple setting so wonderful with your amazing frame work. Keep up the good work.. Would love your feedback on my new short called peekaboo


    • Adrian Lewis says:

      Thank you for your encouragement! Yes, I did read peekaboo, and enjoyed it – its always good to see good writing. For me, the writing of my blog comes a very close second to the creation of the images. A


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