A couple having a hot drink beside the beach in the harbour at St Ives, Cornwall; 10 Oct 2013.

The man is hunched over towards the right, sipping his cuppa, while the woman is inclined towards the left, intent on screwing shut her bottle of milk.  Their two shapes tend to come together somewhat, in the shape of an arch or dome, an effect heightened by her inclined hair bun.  I’ve tried to enhance this impression of togetherness by adding a slight, pale, circular vignette.

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.


  1. Sweet scene and the vignette works very well.

      Well, Gemma, that’s very good to hear! As you know, I enjoy writing, I enjoy putting words together >>> and I value my imagination enormously – though it must be said that it can sometimes take me into “uncharted territory” … 😀 ….. but then, why not???

      As always, ATP, thank you for your good words. ATP xxxXXX!!!
