Car in a basement garage.  The garage is set down below the level of the adjacent pavement, and has open, barred windows – that let in light and air and let out exhaust fumes, and that keep out those with a predilection for theft.

The camera is looking down into this garage, framing some of a car’s rear lights and bodywork.  The window bars make linear reflections on the bodywork, and I’m the more or less amorphous blob (how apt!) just below centre stage.

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 44 45 46 47 .  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. Pretty sure I saw the whole thing go down, Adrian….
    You walking casually down the street, camera in hand…..passing by the car park when–“Whu! Whuh wuzzat?” (Back-steps two steps, looks left and down to where that glint [can a shadowy reflection be a ‘glint’–I think to a photographer it can…] caught the corner of your eye and) “Yes! There–in the headlight of that car!”


  2. Wow, Adrian. Really nice. Love the bits of red and your image, too. But most of all it’s a great composition with a hint of the sinister.
