OUTER SUBURBS 97 – MAIN ROAD 2 (MONO)

One of the city’s main arteries, passing through the Outer Suburbs, and channelling workers into the city in the mornings before emptying them back southwards into the countryside again in the afternoons.  

There is an earlier picture of this main road here: 1 .

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.

    The emptiness of traffic suggests this was taken on one of your early morning walks?

      Of yes, most of the Outer Suburbs pics are taken early in the day – and even though this is a busy main road, its surprising how empty it can be at 0600-0630 – I enjoy just meandering (nothing personal! 🙂 ) about on it >>> always enjoying, even valuing, the “day’s start”. 🙂

        Must be quite nice to have it to yourself – before the madness begins 🙂

          Madness is a very good word – a lot of the driving to work is in what I would term motor racing mode. Many times I have only just missed being run over by drivers reversing out of their driveways without looking, and on my early morning trips to the Levels I breathe a sign of relief when I’m off this road – but even on the country roads there are “bats out of hell”! 🙂

            Yes – it can be pretty scary out there on the roads. Traffic here in rural Wales is very much quieter, thank goodness. Rush hour is pretty sedate; tractors often outnumber all other vehicles. You still get drivers who drive too fast without observing speed limits through villages.

    Wow … that is a grand photograph. An everyday scene driven past thousands of times and seldom noticed closely. Thanks for sharing. Very, good indeed. g
