An Oak meets me in the autumn garden; 18 Nov 2013.

I’m freely mobile but the tree is not – and I can speak but, as far as I know, the tree cannot – and therefore I must be the one doing the meeting and greeting?  

How did Gershwin put it? … ” It ain’t necessarily so … it ain’t necessarily so …”.

Technique: D800 with 15mm Sigma fisheye lens; 800 ISO; Color Efex Pro 4.


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.

    This makes me feel slightly queasy!

    So silly, but I love the way you like to turn things – or concepts – on their heads.


    • Adrian Lewis says:

      Ah, silly is good, silly is exercising the imagination; and looking at concepts / things we take for granted in different ways is one part of what its all about; recognising social constructs and imagined realities for what they are is another. As I told granddaughters, rather to the discomfort of their mother, never stop yourselves from thinking the unthinkable.

    And which of these was Buster barking up at?


    • Adrian Lewis says:

      Well, I’m not sure, but then its not the barking I’m worried about. Rather, I’m reminded of a dog snuffling around Holmes and Watson’s ankles when they were engaged on a long stake out, and Holmes remarking to Watson “Have you ever noticed, Watson, how it starts off warm but then goes cold? …”.

        I’ve heard a story (not sure if it’s true) that Thomas Edison strung two charged wires around the base of a tree to provide a shocking discouragement to passing dogs from leaving their calling cards.


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