In hardly the most visually pleasing of surroundings, a low angle beam of autumn sunlight still manages to conjure a moment of magic as it sneaks in between the scarred walls of old garages and illuminates the single natural and visually appealing thing there.

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. Similar in theme to the pub photo of a few days ago. You could do a whole portfolio of shots with a similar theme. Just saying…

      Thank you, Michael – its just how I see things >>> not sure about a portfolio though, I’ve been compiling annual Blurb photobooks but don’t seem to have got round to it this year – laziness? age????? A 🙂

    Oh, I like that. I like the patterns on the garage on the left, the dark blue background in the middle, and the light on the plant which seems to be comically peeping around the corner of the garage on the right just to have its photo taken 🙂

    Sweet photo…I like this cause everyone can do this but few see the potential and have the PS skills like you have, my friend.


    • Adrian Lewis says:

      Paula, thank you so much >>> but I’ve never used Photoshop; I’m very much after the simple life, and so just stick to Lightroom Classic, and Silver Efex Pro 2, and sometimes Color Efex Pro 4 and the (really ancient, now!) Capture NX2. And also some in-camera raw processing. Adrian 🙂


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