OUTER SUBURBS 195 – LOOKING AT NATURE IN THE MODERN WORLD

 

 


.

Suburban landscape with clear sky and Lesser Black-backed Gull.

Two worlds.  The built environment, beautiful in its own, quite Minimal way.  But entirely rigid and immobile and – save for the curved sides of the light – entirely bounded by artificial, straight surfaces in this view.

And the other world, the Natural World, the world of which you and I are a part.  The blue sky, featureless, just a colour, amorphous, ultimately uncontrived, and beautiful too.  And the bird, intricate, alive, warm-blooded and – unaided – eminently mobile in the air, on water and on land, which is rather more than you and I can manage.  Millions of years of evolution have made it very good at what it does: it is a highly efficient scavenger and predator and, like many birds the world over, it has readily adapted to breeding on the structures that we build.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer - using mono, colour and combinations of the two - many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous, trying new ideas, working in multiple genres. And I've a weakness for Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.
