Early morning on the main road in from the south.  To me, this image has a distinctly hard, cold, ruthless feel, to me there is almost a soulless malevolence here.  Thinking back to the Terminator films, is this The Rise Of The Machines???

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 26 27 28 29 .  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. Love the composition, Adrian! Angry eyes…grrrr! 🙂

    Yes – there is certainly a feeling of anger and intimidation here 🙂

    I think you’re right about the malevolence there… and I think there’s a strong argument for humanity’s desire for this motorised ‘personal transport’ being at the root of what has bought the world to its current possible ruin. Most of our world looks the way it does, and works the way it does, because of the need to support it.

      Well, I’m an oldie now, nearly 71, and there’s an inevitable tendency to see the past through rose-tinted glasses, but I do wonder about today’s world, and especially so the affluent West and Far East, as contrasted with the Third World, where I lived for some years. We may very well be into unsustainable lifestyles. Thank for your comment. 🙂

  4. It’s the headlights. They look like they’re glaring and squinting and ready to strike! Cool shot, bud.

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