Stairs in a city centre car park: stark, utilitarian, unimaginative – the triumph of functionality and “the figure at the bottom of the spreadsheet” over any nod towards elegance or visual appeal.

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. I love how you’ve positioned yourself so that all the lines and shapes—including those of the signs—
    go together. It’s a wonderful composition, Adrian.

    You’ve made such a utilitarian scene look visually appealing!

    Yes, interesting and even ‘arty’ work


  4. And great blues..


  5. Well, I beg to differ.
    This has elegance
    and visual appeal
    out the wazoo.
    At least, to my urban eye.

    There is elegance in the
    slightest glance and this
    is what you’ve gotten
    here in the glimmer of
    this corner of the city.

    Those diagonal lines get me every time. Nice work, A!


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
