OUTER SUBURBS 93 – CAR TRANSPORTER (MONO)

 

 


.

I’ve always wanted to photograph cars on a transporter, I think I’m fascinated by the unreal angles and attitudes the cars adopt when they are packed on board – in a way I think, to me, such images are reminiscent of scenes of mayhem, carnage or destruction.  And the cars are always lashed tightly down, adding further to the feelings of harshness and unreality.

However I seem never to be in the right place at the right time to capture these images – but this passed me as I was walking the Outer Suburbs’ streets and I turned and fired at it, a single frame – not what the TG-5 is best at, but here it is.

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 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 81 82 83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90 91 92 .  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.
