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 the variety of tones and the deep dark tone of the foreground tree – looking like the head of a giraffe perhaps pointing the way šŸ™‚

      M, thank you – and giraffe yes >>> tho news says 30% of tropical African plant species at risk from deforestation, over population and climate change – specifically mentions west Africa, Ethiopia, Democratic Republic of Congo and parts of Tanzania. Sad reading. A

          Yes it is, but as with the ongoing Brexit morass / bullshit, I think it important not to let it get to us personally too much. Nothing is going to be achieved, after all, by you / me / Joe Public going down the mental illness tubes.

            Don’t think I’ve seen you swear on here before, but it’s funny – my eyes hadn’t been open that long this morning before I used that very word to describe the ongoing mess. It put us in mind of Karl Pilkington and his ‘Moaning of Life’ series a few years back. He was fed up with all kinds of things in life which are rubbish and decided to go around pointing at everything that was wrong and to exclaim ‘Bullshit’ at every opportunity. It was very amusing šŸ™‚

              Well, I don’t swear often – even off the blog!!! – because if I were to swear between every other word, as some do, then I’d have nothing left to vent my feelings with when I really do get annoyed!!!

              But then I don’t regard “bullshit” as a swear word, but I do think it sums up and describes quite a few modern phenomena very accurately. Never saw the Pilkington program but can imagine he’d have lots to point at – but my philosophy is to avoid and not get worked about such things, as it changes nothing and just gets me down into the bargain – I just concentrate on things I think worthwhile/interesting >>>> BUT “bullshit” reappears in tomorrow’s post, so brace yourself!!!!!!!!! šŸ™‚

      Yes, the black one takes us into the shot, and spreads across the whole upper half of the frame – the two other trees are preceding it, treading cautiously, down the slope.

      YES >>> the weekend is here!!! – but Tesco has run out of the Triple Hop!!!!!! But still loads of Duvel and Westmalle, so I’m OK!!! Have a very good weekend! A šŸ™‚
