PEOPLE 383 – GOING TO WORK 96 (MONO)

.
The morning rush hour in Bristol city centre.  Grab shots, hastily taken pictures of half-seen human beings, on their way to work.  Faceless, anonymous images that, to me, speak of the often dehumanising influence of work in cities, and of the artificiality of city life generally.

Recent Going to Work posts are here: 93 94 95 .  Each will open in a separate window.

Click onto images 1, 2, 4 and 5 twice to open larger versions in separate windows; image 3 will only respond to a single click.

Technique: Z 6 with 70-300 Nikkor lens; in-camera processing and cropping of raw files, using the Graphite profile; Bristol city centre; 18 Dec 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.

    Nice capture of the reality, Adrian. These photos remind me of when I was in the rat race… especially, the first photo. My daily commute in a crowded, dirty, smelly, bus going home after a long tiring day. So glad that life is behind me. 🙂

      Very glad you like these, Emily >>> and STAY TUNED for a look back over the first 99 Going to Work images on my blog tomorrow morning – 20 of the better photos.

      I’m retired, of course, and I know exactly what you mean about being glad that working life is over – I’m so enjoying retirement! All good luck for the future, my friend! Adrian 🙂

    A theme helps – can’t beat high contrast black and white.
