The car pound – where cash retrieves your car.

The irony here is that, despite this rather forbidding exterior, if you take the trouble to walk around the corner, all the barbed and razor wire has either fallen or been pulled down, so that climbing in is easy.  But, still, getting your car back over that wall is hardly going to be a walk in the park …

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for many types of subject, 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.

    I like this, the angle, the dark, foreboding processing….


  3. Sometimes we get a photo and think it’s definitely a ‘keeper’. This is definitely a ‘keep outer’ 🙂

    Beautiful harsh contrasts and tones of grey/black!

    Oh dear, nasty looking place…Had a ticket the other day for parking in the late evening at Berry Head National Nature reserve…looking at moon!!! Was I fed up ! Beautiful portrait of these forbidding places. I believe it costs at least 100 quid to get your car back.


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