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.  These 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 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 .  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.

  2. Really loving the rich mono-tones in this one, Adrian.
    The contrast sitting nicely between crunchy and smooth.
    Just perfect.

        You too, Adrian. I read that Bristol had incidences of one of the mutant strains. I think Wales is about to fall into one of its holes it digs for itself now and again: they intend opening schools to the younger kids on the 22nd Feb but they are behind England and Scotland with the vaccinations. I hope they don’t get this wrong 😦

          Yes, as in many areas Bristol’s cases are dropping but there are 11 cases here (and more undetected I’m sure) of one of the more transmissable mutant strains; we are very much keeping our heads down. I had the jab last Sat and so am 6 days into the 21 or so needed for the vaccine to take full effect.

          I know very, very much what you mean when you say “I hope they don’t get this wrong.”. Of course there are those here clamouring for loosening of the rules but I am fervently HOPING that Boris will not let everything go to pot again. Some are asking whether the “govt” can be prosecuted for the mismanagement that has led to some many Ks of deaths, and I cannot see any reason why this should not be so.
