Abstract, at the Learning Commons

Tuesday 5th November 2019, 2.00pm (day 2,994)

Learningcommons abstract, 5/11/19

First day on campus in 10. I just like this one as an abstract. Maybe I should make that a separate category for posts on the blog.

The rain it raineth

Tuesday 30th July 2019, 6.15pm (day 2,896)

Raindrop, 30/7/19

Since I posted on Thursday and mentioned how hot and sunny it was, we have seemed never to be more than three hours away from the next storm. I sheltered from this evening’s one under the tarp that has been graciously stretched over the beer garden at the Fox and Goose; it is from this covering that this raindrop rather attractively descends.

View from Leeds station, Monday morning

Monday 1st June 2015, 7.50am (day 1,376)

Leeds station, 1/6/19

Sometimes when doing this blog I take shots a few times before I use them. They’re not one-offs, I know where they are and that they’ll work if the light’s right, but each time I capture a version, something else comes along later in the day and usurps their place. This is an example. I pass through Leeds station often enough, and this abstract is actually a view from platform 14, looking south, through grating to the BT building behind. I must have taken something approaching this shot three or four times by now — but until now, not used it. Here it is today, however: which means I’ll have to find something else to grab in the future, when I’m on Leeds station on a morning and the light is right.

Balloon cemetery

Burst balloons, 13/9/14

Why were there a dozen burst balloons on our bathroom floor this morning? I could tell you, but then I’d have to, well, you know.

My roof

Friday 3rd February 2012, 11.20am (day 162)

Roof slates, 3/2/12

Another day at home working. Freezing cold outside, though bright and sunny. On current rates, of the 206 days this blog still has to run I can expect to spend about another 100 of them at home in HB, so will have to find a few more nuances in the local scene yet, if my posts are not to become repetitive. So here’s today’s attempt: poke one’s head out of the skylight on the shady, frosty side of the house and see what I can do. This was the most interesting shot I got today.
