Bus shelter (with illuminated arrival times) beside a busy main road, a major route into the city from the south.  And the first, faint flush of sunrise.

A few minutes prior to this, crossing this road, I had witnessed two cars narrowly avoiding a collision, only to then myself narrowly avoid being hit by a driver speeding through a red light – ah, south Bristol ….. que je t’aime! …..

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 like the division of space in this one, Adrian. And of course the light(s). But I echo Lynn and firstandfabulous.

    Fantastic shot, A. It seems like two images in one.

      That’s very good sense, my dear friend, I know. But being a photographer I’m often trying to merge into the background, and so it may be better if I always keep very aware of my surroundings, which in any case is what I’m always trying to do. But thank you for your concern.

        🙂 I was mainly kidding because I know you’re a man with his own mind. I should have put a little smiley face in there.

          Well, to be honest, I have had another near miss on a pedestrian crossing, yesterday >>> in fact pedestrian crossings are probably the greatest threat, as people are half asleep driving to work and thinking only of work – so its actually better to choose a road with good visibility in both directions, and then nip across when the coast is clear; roads with traffic islands in the middle are also safer. A 🙂

    Fantastic light and mood, Adrian. Thank goodness you weren’t hit!!

    My wait for the morning bus is full of watching people who don’t know how to merge, cant drive without their phone in the hand, and all of them waiting in traffic in cars and trucks bigger than necessary and all driving alone! My smugness is tempered by breathing their exhaust fumes!

    Interesting and artistic shot, my friend


  7. You are out and about getting some fabulous photos but you need to stay out of harms way. Be careful out there, bud.

      Gemma, my good friend, thank you for your concern – don’t worry, I do take care, I am far from reckless. And sometimes I sit on roadside benches, take my hat off for a breather, and people put money in it … 😉 …

      That said, I am both appalled and very saddened by the way in which some people drive to work; its aggressive, and on occasion rather like a race track; its very sad to see work have such a hold on people. ATP xxxXXX!!!
