STILL LIFE 180 – ACCOMMODATION

Apartments beside the river.

Turning this image onto its side makes it more abstract, as do the reflections.Β  The combination of blue and orange gets to me.

Technique: X-T2 with 55-200 Fujinon lens at 305mm (equiv); 1600 ISO; Lightroom, using the Velvia/Vivid film simulation; rotated 90 degrees clockwise; opposite Welsh Back, central Bristol; 15 Dec 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.

    That’s a real brain teaser! I’ve resembled a confused nodding dog trying to orient myself to it πŸ™‚

      I want you to be the first to know that I’ve never, ever thought of you as a confused, nodding dog – there, I’ve said it! πŸ˜€

      And helpful as this blog unfailingly is, all you have to do is look at your monitor, preferably with this image on the screen, and (carefully!) turn your head 90 degrees to the right, so that your right ear in resting on your right shoulder. After which there is the choice between 111 and 999 … OUCH! (But then, you’ve always known that I’m a pain in the neck) πŸ˜‰

        Pain in the neck? Never! What wee dram will you be seeing the New Year in with – or do you not usually bother staying up?

          Oh you’re too charitable, Ma’am!!! I got stuck into Duvel, Westmalle and the new triple-hopped Duvel last night, but I haven’t stayed up for midnight for many years. Did you? For better or for worse, I’m now heavily into the concept of Imagined Realities, and looking with new eyes at what goes on around me – but one place where Imagined Realities don’t exist is the Natural World, and maybe that’s why I never tire of it, although I like to see the reality, not some TV version. Hope you have a good day! A πŸ™‚

            Yes, we stayed up and performed our usual – and comforting – rites and rituals in this strange house in this strange place. I’d had a big glass of a generic version of Baileys earlier in the evening (I’ve had a fondness for sickly creamy alcoholic Christmas drinks since my father used to make my mother and I ‘snowballs’ from Advocaat many moons ago). I followed this with a big meal and so didn’t have a lot of room for the midnight tincture, but managed to force down a wee glass of Ballantine’s (someone’s got to do it πŸ™‚ ) whilst my other half enjoyed a wee old Laphroaig.

            Have a fab day yourself, my friend πŸ™‚

    Beautiful, Adrian. I agree about those shades of blue and rusty orange together – striking, but then add all the reflections and the geometric shapes and it’s wonderful. I appreciate an image that can be complex and straightforward at the same time.
