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.

    Yes – it does have a very claustrophobic feel. I would feel worried about who might jump out from behind that cabinet and wall as I step towards the car 🙂 No – it won’t be you this time because you are this side of it ……. at least I think you are …….. unless ………

    I really enjoy the balance and the tones you get in your whites and blacks, Adrian. Lovely image. I bet that car can’t wait to get out on the road. I certainly get that impression from the image.😊

      Well, this image and two or three recent ones have been made via the TG-5’s in-camera RAW processing facility, which gives attractive/unusual results – I usually use Silver Efex Pro 2 for my black and white pics, but have been a bit pushed for time recently. And, yes, I agree, that car can’t wait to get out of there!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  5. Weird contrast; looks like the car is lost in the wrong neighborhood and needs a lot more space… Fine shot, Adrian.

      Its a strange effect, isn’t it – a combination of what was there, plus the 100mm telephoto compression, plus large depth of focus from the diminutive sensor, plus this rather surreal in-camera RAW processing – glad it gets to you, my friend! A 🙂
