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.

      Well, I mean, regarding your face, anything you say, Dame Edith!!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

      And the colours: on returning to Kenya from leave in the UK, I was always immediately struck by the vibrancy of the colours, which was due both to the brighter colours of many of the lifeforms, and to the exceptionally bright sunlight – the equatorial sun was right overhead every day, and with Nairobi over a mile above sea level, the overall effect was intense.
