First one up?

Friday 19th October 2018, 6.10am (day 2,612)

First one up, 19/10/18

Pulled duty on the 6:32 train to Manchester for the first time in a while, making this the earliest true morning shot since January 2017. Maybe I wasn’t the first one up in the whole town but there weren’t many of us. A long week of work comes to an end. Is it Christmas yet?

Another house view

Monday 15th October 2018, 4.10pm (day 2,608)

Another house view, 15/10/18

There’s not a great deal happening at the moment. On such occasions it’s time to appreciate the good colours and light to be seen out of our back windows, when they’re available. Today, they were. Whatever that particularly yellow tree is, it was shining like a beacon over the town at 4.10pm this afternoon. And I know the tower of the Nutclough Mill gets in the way a bit, but it has been there a long time.

Violet's tattoos, 12/10/18

This is very Hebden Bridge. With an autumn sheen.

Calder Holmes Park

Thursday 11th October 2018, 2.30pm (day 2,604)

Calder Holmes, 11/10/18

Maybe it’s all down to the same combination of conditions that have produced the fecundity of fruit and fungi, but the autumn colours this year are very fine. This is not another football shot, honestly.

Towpath repairs

Tuesday 9th October 2018, 9.20am (day 2,602)

Towpath repairs, 9/10/18

One of the hi-vis army does his valuable stuff on the banks of the Rochdale Canal. A beautiful morning today, and a real ‘Indian Summer’ day. Fine by me.

Browns

Sunday 7th October 2018, 12.20pm (day 2,600)

Browns, 7/10/18

The browns of autumn…. Only, there is no plant life in sight. The world is still browning up, though. (Or is it browning down.)

Stuck at home (with this view)

Monday 1st October 2018, 8.55am (day 2,594)

Nutclough, 1/10/18

The second monochrome shot in a row but it was a way of bringing some added interest to this view. I worked at home all day and did not leave the house. I know it’s a pretty distinctive view, in relative terms. But it is also everyday, for us at least.

In the junk shop

Sunday 30th September 2018, 3.45pm (day 2,593)

Typesetting tray, 30/9/18

This is one of those junk shops that has grandiose self-image and calls itself an “Antiques Centre” but we’ll let it off. I believe this object is an old typesetting tray, the kind of thing useful when typefaces came as hundreds of small carved pieces of metal. What practical use to anyone it is nowadays, I cannot imagine, but on the other hand it is a pretty cool lump of wood if you ask me. Not that I decided to lug it home or anything.

Sunshine and showers

Friday 21st September 2018, 4.00pm (day 2,584)

Shower and sun, 21/9/18

Another grim day of weather, describable, at one level, as ‘sunshine and showers’, but the sunshine was brief and brought no succour, while the showers were prolonged and heavy. Here, they coincide, but I was still getting very wet.

Getting ready to open

Tuesday 11th September 2018, 3.15pm (day 2,574)

Opening Nightjar, 11/9/18

Not an eventful day at all. I am hiding at home doing my best to get ready for things opening at uni in a couple of weeks’ time. Like these guys,  but just on a bigger scale. The Nightjar bar sits below the Picture House and is one of those places that serves a dozen beers, all of them over-hopped and fruity, which is why these guys have beards.
