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.

    Beautiful. Now a Blurb book of all your Stanton Drew images would be wonderful!

      Thank you, M! Well, Blurbwise OMG! I’m into my largest book to date with 135 images – I’m getting there! A book of Stanton Drew images would be good, but it all takes time – and I’m thinking – but only thinking! – of a book of Going to Work images for a psychologist friend. (Don’t want anything to interfere with my Duvel time …)

      And now I’ve just been to the kitchen window to monitor the snow situation – less is falling but what has fallen has settled – and WOWEE!!! a Sparrowhawk shot furiously into view and had a go at the Wood Pigeons!!! Wait for it … wait for it … OH GREAT STUFF!!!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

        The Going to Work idea sounds great!

        Hope you’ve been staying nice and warm; I noticed a red weather warning around the Bristol and Somerset areas. Just a light dusting here overnight, but the wind is very strong now, accompanied by freezing rain.

          Well, we’ll see what happens, Blurb books involve quite a bit of work, or at least they do if they’re to look any good, but the Going to Work one might take off – but I enjoy photography + blogging, and, in retirement, many other things seem to become a little diffuse …. 😉 … always put off today what you can do tomorrow …

          I’m ok thanks – it was obvious that something disruptive was coming, so we did a big shop on Wednesday, and now we’re just indoors until the snow goes away – the rest of today and probably tomorrow morning at least looks to be a no-no for going out. Also, being generally interested in natural things, I’m interested to follow the meteorology and to see what’s actually happening “on the ground”. Hope you’re both fine too. A 🙂

            We’re good, thanks. We’ve been in over the last couple of days having got in our supplies on Monday. If lots of snow had fallen I would have gone out to play but it’s bitter here with a very strong wind, plus freezing rain, and now hail – not such fun 🙂

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