ARCHIVE 418 – GOING TO WORK 10

 

 


.
Something from the Going to Work series, which seems a long time ago now:

Is this really a post in the “People” Category???  Well, if I dose myself up on artistic leeway and add a substantial shot of festive cheer (and lapse into truly dreadful puns too), there is a person here, maybe on her way to work, and she’s taking a front seat, indeed you could almost say she’s driving the image … ooohhhh …. 😉 …

But the star of the show is being driven – and giving me a rather fixed stare too.  I’m glad we weren’t sharing the ride ……..

Technique: X-T1 with 55-200 Fujinon lens at 305mm (equiv); 800 ISO; morning rush hour, Baldwin Street, central Bristol; 5 Aug 2016.

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.

  6. What a great shot! 🙂
    I love your ‘Going to Work’ series and this one brings a nice twist. The composition and colours are great. I like the idea that the driver is fully unaware of how the dog appears to be enjoying it’s moment in the spotlight. The dog portrait itself is really nice but the context fully completes the picture and brings some humour to the show.
    It has definitely given me a smile this morning..
    Cheers

  7. Thank you. I fully appreciate that. However, should you ever decide to do an exclusive dog series…

  8. The dog is perfect. Perfect. I would be tempted to crop to only include the dog portrait which, by the way, is perfect.

      Well that’s perfect then, Michael >>> thank you!!! 🙂 Yes, looking at the dog alone would certainly be an effective alternative crop, but when I took this I was getting increasingly enthusiastic about a series featuring people going to work in the morning rush hour and so decided to include the car and its driver – however peripherally – too.

    Oh the dog is absolutely wonderful! Perfect expression looking out at the world and being rather dubious. Good shot, Adrian!
