The Looking at Cars series: looking back through the nine years of the FATman Photos archives (and some new images too), I’m posting pictures of cars in various contexts and styles.  Earlier Looking at Cars posts are here: 1 (with context); 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 .  Each post will open in a separate window.

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.


  1. What a nice twofer: car and dew. And the framing is great.

    Another super car close-up. I love the silver strip which cuts across the top third 🙂

      Thank you! Yes, that silver strip; so often, when looking at cars, there are graphic elements all over the place. I’m not at all a care freak or petrol head, tho from decades back I do have a soft spot for Series 3 Land Rovers and VW Beetles too but, so often, the ways in which light interacts with cars is striking. 🙂

        Are Series 3 landies the ones farmers used to drive (before they became rich, ho, ho), which could be hosed down inside and out when muddy? 🙂 🙂


        • Adrian Lewis says:

          Yes, that sounds like them; not the really old – almost antique – Land Rovers that you sometimes see about, but the things that really look like Land Rovers, extremely rugged and basic, yes hosing down inside and out – I drove them in the Oman mountains around 1975/7 – fond memories of vast amounts of petrol stored in jerry cans in a roof rack immediately over the driver’s head – and of an Optimus petrol stove exploding in the back of one of these vehicles when we were “cooking indoors” in bad weather! Halcyon days – that I’m very lucky to have experienced! In fact I’ve got a pic of one of these Series 3’s – I’ll post it soon! 🙂
