Clare and her Lego lady

Friday 30th January 2015, 4.50pm (day 1,254)

Clare & lego lady, 30/1/15

Whether inspired by me or not, Clare now has a photo blog of her own where she intends to post a photo of a Lego figure every day for a year. Our paths were bound to coincide at some point. Took 30 days.

Rooves and windows, Hebden Bridge

Thursday 29th January 2015, 12.10pm (day 1,253)

Rooves and windows, 29/1/15

As seen from the back of my house — which I did not leave today. Too much marking to do, and too cold, though not the snow fall that was forecast.

More winter

Wednesday 28th January 2015, 3.30pm (day 1,252)

Hail storm, 28/1/15This hail storm was just the prelude, so the forecasts say. All of last week’s snow disappeared overnight on Monday — but it seems this week’s is well on the way.

Spectre, 27/1/15

A somewhat disquieting vision outside the White Lion this afternoon. Perhaps the scythe is in the backpack.

St. Peter’s Square building site

Monday 26th January 2015, 5.00pm (day 1,250)

St Peter's Square, 26/1/15

Sometimes one must just acknowledge that all the pictures taken on a given day were a bit crap one way or another. This at least epitomises the fact that most of Manchester city centre is currently a building site. Don’t get used to seeing it though — the rest of the week I’m at home, marking. Things will liven up again soon I hope.

Poole and Bowman

Sunday 25th January 2015, 9.40pm (day 1,249)

Bowman and Poole, 25/1/15

Cheat it may be to take a photo of a cinema screen, but I don’t care. This is, quite definitely, one of the best half-dozen movies ever made, and tonight it was playing not ten minutes’ walk from my house. These things matter.

On Watch Hill

Saturday 24th January 2015, 11.05am (day 1,248)

On Watch Hill, 24/1/15

Time for a walk. Watch Hill is near Cockermouth, Cumbria. This is my Zen landscape shot. More will appear on my walking blog in due course (probably tomorrow).

Bex and friends, 23/1/15

It’s Friday night, and more than welcome. Bex (Rebecca) is the one in the centre by the way. Have a good weekend.

“It’s the Internet… stupid!”

Thursday 22nd January 2015, 2.45pm (day 1,246)

Lecture, 22/1/15

Manchester was dull, grey and non-snowy today but this blog is becoming quite Hebden-bound lately and I may as well prove that once in a while I do go to work. Here Simon Nelson, CEO of FutureLearn, boils down his philosophy of life into a few pithy words. He’s probably right.

In the snow

Wednesday 21st January 2015, 12.25pm (day 1,245)

Clare in snow, 21/1/15

It snowed again. A lot. Enough to make it kind of enjoyable, and that’s why I like this picture — the look of pleasure on Clare’s face. OK, let’s self-criticse about the tree growing out of her shoulder, but hey.
