Enjoying the sunshine

Saturday 25th June 2022, 4.20pm (day 3,957)

Outside Railway, 25/6/22

I did very little else other than enjoy some sunshine on this Saturday afternoon; and I was not the only one.

Friday afternoon reflections

Friday 17th June 2022, 4.50pm (day 3,949)

In Mark's sunglasses, 17/6/22

Friday, at the end of a busy week, and the sun was out. I make no apologies for heading for the pub. Others thought the same, as depicted in my camera, and in Mark’s sunglasses.

On the walk back from Old Town

Saturday 4th June 2022, 6.00pm (day 3,936)

Walking home, 4/6/22

Well, I was walking back from Old Town — I don’t know where this person’s itinerary had taken them. I am reminded now and again that I do live in a pleasant part of the world. That’s not an accident.

GSTQ

Friday 3rd June 2022, 11.00am (day 3,935)

GSTQ, 3/6/22

There’s a lot that could be said about Britain’s currently-mandated festivities, but I can’t be bothered. I spent the day finishing off my marking. To note the occasion, here’s some commercialised art, originally from 1977.

Lynn outside the Railway

Monday 30th May 2022, 5.05pm (day 3,931)

Lynn, Railway, 30/5/22

The Railway Inn is undeniably close to a main road. But we don’t let it spoil our enjoyment of the outdoor seating; one of Hebden Bridge’s best suntraps. Like the rest of us, Lynn was enjoying it this afternoon.

Art criticism

Wednesday 18th May 2022, 4.15pm (day 3,919)

Pretentious crap, 18/5/22

I’ve been saving this one up for a while; this piece of anonymous art criticism has been in place for some months now. Could he be saying the same thing about my own work? Pretentious, I hope not. Boring maybe, but that’s life.

Evening blossom

Sunday 17th April 2022, 8.35pm (day 3,888)

Evening blossom, 17/4/22

The cherry blossom in the courtyard at work had been and gone six weeks ago, but the more exposed trees outside the White Lion in Hebden Bridge require more lead-in time to reach full flower. Still, here they are — in time to make the place look good for the Easter daytrippers.

The home district

Sunday 10th April 2022, 11.50am (day 3,881)

HB landscape, 10/4/22

Actually, home, in the strictest sense, is a little to the right of this shot. But this is, near enough, where I’ve located myself for the last 21.75 years. There are reasons.

Friday market, DVD stall

Friday 8th April 2022, 1.35pm (day 3,879)

DVDs at market, 8/4/22

I continue to not get out: this is the 9th of the last 12 pictures to be taken in Hebden Bridge and the coming weekend ain’t gonna see me explore the world much either. Today, the stall full of digital info (DVDs, CDs) at least offered a new perspective on the Friday market of which it is a part. No purchase today though: a quick review suggests that any of these I might be interested in watching, I already own (Ted, Black Swan, Gravity and I am Legend — happy hunting)…

The immediate vicinity

Tuesday 22nd March 2022, 11.40am (day 3,862)

Outside house, 22/3/22

After 11 days of 11 different places I had no need to, nor intention to, leave the house today. What you see here is what was outside our front door, with the little dollop of variety and ‘free stuff’ to sustain the interest — at least a little.
