Modern life?

Well, bits of it, little bits of it,

our litter and our leavings,

anything and everything, things around us,

little bits of Modern Life in south Bristol.


Having been where such safeguards can be


I feel very fortunate to be living where

I have a roof over my head,

some heating in winter,

more food than (even) I can eat,

and – most of all – peace.

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.

    Interesting! I really like the first image, and I see what you’re doing with the series, but I have to say, that last one makes me want to turn away. 🙂 I feel fortunate too, fortunate to have the roof and food, etc. – the security – so that I can spend time looking at the world, like you. 🙂

      Glad you like the first one, very glad, I may do more in this vein. And the last one, well, for many now, this is a facet of Modern Life. Not for me though, I much prefer the long solitary walks. 🙂

    Yes, mostly we are not aware of how fortunate we are…and want ‘more’!


  3. Sadly food and peace are gradually becoming more scarce for a growing number of people. You are right to consider and share thoughts about the things which many take for granted. As we head towards winter life can so much more difficult for people, the elderly, people who are homeless, people and families living on the breadline, the people being ground down by austerity, people in warzones and refugees. We all have a responsibility to speak and act on such matters. Thanks for sharing the images and your thoughts. Best wishes, Mr C 🙂

      Thank you for your good words, Mr C. I spent 12 years in Kenya and, before that, visited the Middle East. I saw real hardship and many other things, which have had an effect on me for which I am very grateful. A
