OUTER SUBURBS 119 – LOOKING DOWN, THIS MORNING

 

 


.

Haven’t done much photography in the Outer Suburbs of late.  At this time of year, both the darkness and the sun’s rise are long gone by even the early hours when I’m about; and maybe I’m not keeping my eyes sufficiently open – familiarity breeds contempt perhaps???   And there are also the Long John Silver impressions resulting from aging legs – enhanced by last Friday’s fall on the Levels – the effects of which, I’m relieved to say, are slowly but surely diminishing >>> and so, I hope, to another early Levels morning this Friday!

But I still carry the little Olympus camera around the Outer Suburbs and this morning, warily crossing a rush hour road, I stepped off the kerb, looked down and saw this.

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 93 94 95 96 97 98 99 100 101 102 103 104 105 106 107 108 109 110 111 112 113 114 115 116 117 118 .  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.

    Love this very interesting and attractive abstract. When I saw it on the reader, the bottle looked like a shrouded figure standing in front of railings (no I haven’t been at the drink ……. yet!) 🙂

        🙂 Have fun! I don’t think rain is forecast (we’ve had some here today but not enough to replenish the water butts). Just spotted a greater spotted woodpecker drinking raindrops from a branch in the garden!!

          Oh, a Great Spottie, great stuff!!! No, tomorrow’s dry I think, but then, being with the car, even wet days are ok, and sometimes they throw up good pix too. Have to say that, for my simple soul, charging off early, getting back sh**ged out after lunch, and then relaxing with a few Duvels is … well … let’s put it this way … there are far worse ways on spending one’s day 🙂 🙂 🙂

  5. This could have been staged by an artist making a statement. Instead it was found by a photographer taking a walk. Perfect capture.
