Joe in the alley

Saturday 15th August 2015, 1.15pm (day 1,451)

Joe beside cinema, 15/8/15

We’re still not moving a great distance from home. Taken down the side of the cinema in Hebden Bridge. Why do I like it? The arrow, the lines, the capturing of Joe’s shuffling gait.

Pub delivery

Friday 14th August 2015, 4.00pm (day 1,450)

Pub delivery, 14/8/15

A lot of restaurant- and pub-related posts lately. Well, that’s life — this week there’s been little more than home, work and pub. Bear with it…

Ilias, 13/8/15

Ilias is the son of Marilena (behind), who works for me despite living in Corfu — but that’s the online world for you. This was his first visit to England, we met them for lunch in Manchester, and he got to show that he has adopted certain local customs even at his young age. Yia mas!

(Obligatory child protection note: he didn’t drink it, you know.)

Bee buddleia bonanza

Wednesday 12th August 2015, 11.55am (day 1,448)

Bee and buddleia, 12/8/15

I have this image of the bee just diving in and troughing, like it’s the bee equivalent of some Roman orgy or similar. “Hah! Gimme nectar!”

Clouds over the library

Tuesday 11th August 2015, 11.50am (day 1,447)

Clouds over library, 11/8/15

First day in Manchester for a while. Ominous clouds, but they passed over without molesting us. I like this shot — trips to deepest Africa notwithstanding, one of my favourite ones for a while.

Under the umbrella

Under the umbrella, 10/8/15

I returned to work. It rained. Well, these things will happen, they still need documenting…

Keith prepares the stocks

Sunday 9th August 2015, 3.45pm (day 1,445)

Keith and stocks, 9/8/15

To help with the fundraising aspect of the Kilimanjaro walk (I’ve been raising money for the Calder Valley Search and Rescue team, if you’d like to help), my local, the Railway, had an afternoon of fun and frolics. It was Keith’s idea to set up the stocks (a pound for three throws) — he went in first, therefore. But I did get wet myself…

Valve, 8/8/15

Beautiful, sunny day, spent out with the family at the Keighley & Worth Valley railway. I pick this valve as today’s shot because I think it looks like a space station. Go on, tell me you see it.

Glass in restaurant

Friday 7th August 2015, 7.40pm (day 1,443)

Glass, 7/8/15

Because this blog is just me documenting my life, one day at a time, as it comes, it is inevitable that the periods of activity and interest must subside. Little will happen over the next couple of weeks. Spent all morning doing the photos from the trip, then the afternoon unpacking, the evening reacquainting myself with the local pub and eating out. So this is as good as I could do today.

Cafe, Julius Nyerere Airport

Thursday 6th August 2015, 2.00am (day 1,442)

Cafe at airport, 6/8/15

And so it ends. The last night in Tanzania was spent waiting out a 90-minute flight delay before heading home. I chose this as today’s pic, at least in part, to fill in one of the last two remaining time gaps — this is the first picture to be taken within the hour of 2:00 – 2:59am, now only 5:00 – 5:59 remains undepicted in the near four years of this blog.

So I’ve caught up. Time to go and unpack. I had my priorities right this morning…
