The side of a supermarket facing away from customers’ eyes, so lacking marketing, advertising, corporate image and all that other profitable hot air – money talks and bullsh*t walks, right? 

So no frills here, just bricks, mortar, metal, cement and glass; pure functionality, for doing the job.  It looks a little bleak?  Well this is south Bristol.

The first image in this series, with context, is here: 1 .  It will open in a separate window.

Click onto the image to open a larger version in a separate window, and click onto that image to enlarge it further – definitely recommended.

Technique: TG-5 at 100mm (equiv); 800 ISO; Lightroom, using the Camera Vivid film preset; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Architectural preset and adding a light coffee tone; south Bristol; 18 Aug 2018.

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.

    Bleak and colourless yes, but is that a little greenery I see in the bottom left? Those bricks don’t look very uniform in colour, maybe a mosaic of reds and oranges? And those tall pipes and vents? Black? White? Or a silvery tin colour maybe which will catch just a hint of light on a sunny day. 😊


  2. This photo looks like it could have been taken in 1951 (a very good year ). Second edition to the series. Nice job!

      Thank you, my friend – and I’ve made the correction you asked for. And passing this building again, I’ve realised (probably what was obvious to everyone else before!) that that is in fact an electrified fence – they sure ain’t messing about with their security!!! ATP xxxXXX!!!

    Yea, sure, the ‘other’ side is not always pretty!


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