Walking through endless housing estates in the early morning, and looking up at a large tree just as the sky was lightening.

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.

    There’s that thick, beautiful darkness, the kind that mutes colors so nicely….my, you ARE up early!


    • Adrian Lewis says:

      Yes, thick darkness, exactly. Yes, early starts, the flesh is getting a little less willing to get up and out these days, but I still love the early mornings. 🙂

        Intellectually I know it’s a magical time…but…


        • Adrian Lewis says:

          Yes, and intellectually I know that I am by no means the norm, but maybe decades of birding and safaris have left me with this, and I’m not complaining. I also am always early for meetings, appointments etc etc, and years ago a social worker (oo, its just gone suddenly chilly in here … 😉 …..), one of my work colleagues, told me that this might be a sign if insecurity – maybe it is! Anyway, its me!!! 🙂

    How lovely. I like the aerial and chimney pot details at the bottom 🙂


    • Adrian Lewis says:

      Thank you, M! I did think about taking the aerial and chimney pot out but, really, they’re a part of the suburban scene I was looking at. 🙂

        No! Never remove aerials and chimney pots; I would be bereft without them (very important symbols and memory nudges of my childhood – absolutely love them – even bought a set of greetings cards with just chimney pots once ………….. whatever happened to them ………. 🙂 ).

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