OUTER SUBURBS 13 – STREET SCENE: ENTRANCE TO AN UNDERPASS (MONO)

This picture is best viewed enlarged – click onto it to open a larger version in a separate window, and click onto that image to enlarge it further.

The path down to an underpass below a road, with vertical metal poles to keep out anything larger than bicycles.  Irresistibly I’m reminded of a path down to Hell, with two slim, grim, austere guardians at its entrance.

And do I believe in Hell?  Well, certainly not in any religious sense.  But I do believe that there are Hells on Earth: some of us make them for ourselves, and some of us make them for others, sometimes vast numbers of others.

The first image in the Outer Suburbs series, with context, is here: 1 .  Subsequent images are here: 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 .  Each will open in a separate window.

Technique: TG-5 at 25mm (equiv); 500 ISO; Lightroom, using the Camera Vivid film simulation; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the High Contrast Harsh preset; south Bristol; 27 Aug 2018.

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.

  4. And don’t forget Cerberus!! Fine shot; I like the 2 poles in the front, as an entrance to the shot; and the walls as an entrance to the gate of hell.. 🙂
