Walking up St John’s Steep with Paula, and thence off left into narrower streets and alleys.

The going became shadier and more closed in, until suddenly we were looking right through a building and out into the brightness of an adjacent street.

But although the light and colours in that street were bright and welcoming, caged and barred darkness kept them inexorably distant.

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.


  1. Excellent Adrian!


  2. I’m going backwards through the reader. Again I think you have the eye of an artist and the mind of a designer sometimes. I love this image.

  3. The dark surrounding such beautiful color is striking. I like the grid, too. Well done, Adrian!


  4. Terrific photo! It looks a bit like stained glass.
