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.

          Ah, keeping close to natural things, that’s the thing – can’t say I’m (by any stretch of the imagination!) a gardener but keeping alongside the Natural World – including gardens of course! – is a way forward for us all. Its good to talk to you, my friend. You are often in my thoughts. A πŸ™‚

  3. You’ve captured the autonomy of this squirrel. In his mind, he is not a bad guy relative to the good guys. He is not defined by his relationship to others who don’t like him. He’s just who he is. This photograph is similar in feeling to your photographs that capture the dignity of the white cat.

    What a sweet portrait, Adrian, with its vintage look. I say sweet, but I’m sure he has some devious thoughts going on in his head! πŸ˜€

    I appreciate your doing something nice with this rodent….we re not so happy with them here, as they have displaced our native squirrels to some degree. Well, we do still have the native species so it can’t be too bad….very nicely done, Adrian! πŸ™‚

      Thank you! >>> they’re not native here either, and have apparently badly affected our native Red Squirrel, which is never around here now. But, despite that, we still like to see them. A πŸ™‚

      Thank you, Glen. It was perched on the top of the pole which supported our clothes line, right outside of our kitchen window – and was distinctive because of the notch in its right ear; now long dead I imagine. Adrian πŸ™‚
