Looking up: streetlight with contrails and cloud.  The side of the light is just catching the glare of the sunrise.  The square structure below the light is a shield to prevent it shining into houses.

Looking up: something that, as photographers, we should all keep in mind >>> indeed, keeping looking every which way is the thing.

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 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 .  Each will open in a separate window.

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.

      Hello Esther, habariaco? How is your final year at university going? Remember – do as much work as necessary, and have as much pleasure/enjoyment as possible! 🙂 I imagine you’ll be going home for Christmas.

      I’m doing ok, but have been troubled for a month or more by pain in my right leg – I’m mzee after all! – but its gradually easing now. I’m sorting out lots of stored things at home, and these include many things from my Kenyan days, which are good to see, though sometimes poignant too. A 🙂 🙂 🙂


      • esterkiki says:

        Mzuri sana Adrian. Im sorry about the pain…
        Is it because of the cold?
        Actually the exams are next week. Then break for Christmas . Yaaay.
        Souvenirs from Kenya? Must include pretty incredible pictures too!
        I really hope you get better.😊😉😉


        • Adrian Lewis says:

          Yes, I’m ok, thanks, my dear – the pains could be far, far worse, and they do appear to be (slowly) going away. Getting old is partly a state of mind, partly a matter of outlook, but there’s no denying the attendant aches and pains too, and they are very real, physical phenomena!

          And the exams, well, just revise in a quiet, calm place, and jot down things on scrap paper to help fix them in your mind. Am I right in thinking its then your final exams sometime next June or so? Good luck!!! I’m thinking of you! A 🙂
