Main road, early morning. 

Emptiness, space; 

loneliness, peace. 

For awhile, at least. 

And, out of shot, a fat, dishevelled and rather improbable figure, standing on a traffic island and pointing a little camera at it all.

I’m a great fan of the film Terminator 2.  I was extremely fortunate in being introduced to it by my kids.  And now, looking at this image, I’m irresistibly reminded of Sarah Connor’s words:


The future, always so clear to me, had become like a black highway at night.  We were in uncharted territory now, making up history as we went along.

I’m not sure if her second sentence also applies to my Outer Suburbs pictures, but sometimes it can feel like uncharted territory … 🙂 …

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 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 53a 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 .  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.

    A beautiful image, Adrian, and the quote works with it.

    I like it – reminds me of travelling late at night through the early hours. There’s something reassuring and comforting about street lights and traffic lights carrying on their work during the night.

    Love the Terminator films, too!


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