Many of my south Bristol photos tend towards the austere and, in Bristol, the south is the poor relation of north.  But, as you can see here, affluence is by no means absent south of the river.

This shot?  Well, the bush is growing over (“eating”!) the road sign – this is Nature and Nature never stops!  And then I decided to emphasise the bush, and to separate it from everything else, by restoring its colour.

The first image in this series, with context, is here: 1 .  Subsequent images are here: 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 .  Each will open in a separate window.

Technique: TG-5 at 35mm (equiv); 500 ISO; Lightroom, using the Camera Vivid film simulation; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Full Contrast and Structure preset and selectively restoring colour; south Bristol; 22 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.

    That works really well. I like the strong contrasts in the mono parts and the lovely green of the conifer ‘eating’ the sign. It looks a bit like one of the Muppets 🙂

  3. That bush needs a pair of eyes! 🙂

    A photo can never show the whole of things, nor can our eyes see that…good to see the contrast though!


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