Just before the sun rises, and the drive through the rush hour’s traffic is over.  Sitting in her car, she is illuminated by the light from the screen of a mobile device – a last check, perhaps, before going in to work.

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.

  1. Adrian, what should I say… ….great, again!

    The associations are coming fast and furious – I actually thought of the Pieta, so we’re in the same ballpark, thinking this photo exudes an atmosphere from a slower time, in spite of what made her look down. Isn’t that a conundrum?


    • Adrian Lewis says:

      Yes it is >>> and I have to say, with much humility, that I’m very taken aback by the responses that this image has engendered >>> absolutely nothing of this sort was in my mind when I captured or processed the image, and I really am very grateful for, and very informed by, the responses. That Going To Work should stimulate such Classical allusions is simply amazing. A 🙂


  3. Oh, Adrian. Just beautiful. Arati says, “Reminiscent of 17th century Dutch paintings.” When I first saw it, I thought “Caravaggio.” Despite the steering wheel and cell-phone light, this is clearly an image not of our time.

    Beautiful, though she does look asleep at the wheel. 🙂

    Beautiful shot, my pet hate all these folk staring at there screen at the tiniest bleep..but in your case it has been very useful!


    • Adrian Lewis says:

      Thank you! >>> and I’ve just replied to your email. Yes, many people now more or less live by their screens, are more or less addicted to them – indeed I believe that such addictions are now being medically recognised. I do have a mobile phone but I won’t get into the manic constant checking of it, I find that very restricting and boring – and also, for a photographer bent on taking pictures, screens take us to another place, so that we become largely unaware of the surroundings we are hoping to photograph. Let’s get together in the not too distant future. A xxx

    Lovely light. Reminiscent of 17th century Dutch paintings.


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