The early morning bus: misted windows, close atmosphere – and anything to distract from the tedium of the commute.

More than three years back, I started early morning photography in Bristol city centre.  This led to a series of images of people and vehicles in the city’s morning rush hour, entitled Going to Work – see links to these posts below.  Not having been down early to the city for sometime, the Going to Work posts ceased – but I’ve made another early visit to the city, and so to more pictures.

Technique: Z6 with 70-300 Nikkor lens at 300mm; 12,800 ISO; Lightroom, starting at the Camera Portrait v2 profile; Bristol city centre; 29 Nov 2019.

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.

    Beautiful!! Textures too.

    Wow. This is intense, Adrian. And is it a coincidence that this dirty, smeared window appears on your blog just after the vote is tallied? How’re you feeling? 😉


    • Adrian Lewis says:

      Haha! >>> I am feeling absolutely WONDERFUL, my friend!!! At last we have some political certainty, and at last we have someone with real ability and sheer energetic get-up-and-go in charge. I admire Boris Johnson far more than any other politician – and he is doing a very right thing today for example – he is going up north to see and thank the traditionally Labour voters who changed to Conservative to show their fury at the lack of progress on the Brexit referendum.

      Two things now remain to be seen: 1: whether the Conservatives will back Boris fully in his endeavours – and if not then revolution will certainly get my backing; and 2: whether Boris will indeed deliver on his many pertinent promises that are so relevant to the UK today – not least re One UK, a UK for all. Only time will tell. So, while continuing to drink (a lot of) Belgian beer and take (many!) photographs, at last, I also have some hope. 🙂


      • bluebrightly says:

        I’m glad you have hope – it’s in very short supply over here. And the Belgian beer? Any worries on price and availability going forward?


        • Adrian Lewis says:

          Yes, I do have hope, but nothing is certain and we will just have to wait and see. But yesterday, a Brexit enabling bill went through parliament with a huge majority which, significantly, was larger than the government’s overall majority

          And if the cost/availability of Belgian beer change, which may happen, then I’ll just go with it, come what may. Particularly in view of the way in which EU officials have dealt with the UK since the start of Brexit, I’m more than ever convinced of our need to leave. Which does not at all mean turning our backs in Europe, but rather just not being a part of the EU bloc.

          But with you, I very much understand, the situation is far graver. I have not the slightest doubt Trump is completely unfit to be president, laughably so in fact, but because they want power at any cost, I think the Republicans will try and keep him in office. I very much feel for you, and the many, many of those like you, my friend.


  3. Another fine addition to your always-interesting Going to Work series, Adrian.


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