View to the hills

Friday 23rd October 2020, 3.45pm (day 3,347)

Rooves and hills, 23/10/20

With no disrespect to the people who are sharing this life with me (Clare, Joe), things have a drabness to them at the moment: all the diary contains are work events, there is nothing communal beyond some football matches (and even they are visited alone), no parties, no gigs. This is what the world has become now the Great Fear has been used as an excuse to kick us all into a digital semi-prison. If things are different where you are, then embrace that. At least from my house the view is quite good, particularly when the afternoon sunlight catches the hills in the distance.

Memorial Gardens, Hebden Bridge

Sunday 1st September 2019, 5.00pm (day 2,929)

Memorial gardens, 1/9/19

A pleasant afternoon. Too bold with the tree trunk — too much sunlight? Well, perhaps I am feeling bold. Time passes, as autumn progresses it will not be long before this scene will no longer be lit at 5pm on any given day.

The afternoon pint

Wednesday 19th April 2017, 3.30pm (day 2,064)

Afternoon pint, 19/4/17

An indolent day, still off work, and yes, I was in the pub at 3.30pm, although only for one. Well, maybe a couple. There is something melancholy about it, I know.

Door handle, 11/1/17

There was never going to be a great deal of excitement about today’s picture, I can assure you. Still, I get out and about more as of tomorrow. In the mean time let’s enjoy some nice afternoon light while we can — tomorrow’s weather forecast looks pretty cruddy.

The Victoria Road building site

Saturday 22nd November 2014, 3.00pm (day 1,185)

Victoria Road site, 22/11/14

This is the building site that children should not play on (as pictured behind the playground equipment a couple of weeks ago). A burst of sunlight caught it very well this afternoon.

Late afternoon

Thursday 30th January 2014, 3.00pm (day 889)

Late afternoon, 30/1/14

I don’t claim that reality was quite as dramatic as this — I dropped the red filter on this one — but hell, who said digital photography had to always be about reality? I just massaged the raw ingredients, if you like. It’s something to pass the time while spending another day quarantined in the house. It seems I probably have German measles (rubella), by the way.

A Sunny Friday Evening Outside the Railway

Friday 5th July 2013, 4.55pm (day 680)

Outside Railway, 5/7/13

The title of the post says it all. It’s sunny, warm, Friday evening… this is where your friends are… what would you do?

Books on the floor of Joe’s room

Thursday 4th July 2013, 4.10pm (day 679)

Books on floor, 4/7/13

While citizens of the USA were presumably celebtrating their Independence Day today, I had a day spent mostly at home writing. These books caught my eye later on though, bathed in a small pool of afternoon sunlight. It would be nice to claim our Joe was a voracious reader but I think these are on their way to the car boot sale. Indeed it would probably embarrass him to reveal to the world there are still around 20 Thomas the Tank Engine books visible here. So I won’t point that out.

The little star

Sunday 25th November 2012, 12.25pm (day 458)

Little star, 25/11/12

It hangs in our window, the light fell just so. Joe’s a little star too, of course.

Clare dressing for our night out

Saturday 22nd October 2011, 4.00pm (day 58)

Clare dressing, 22/10/11

It’s early in the day to be posting I know, but I don’t want to take the camera to the gig in Leeds, and do you think I’d get a better shot anyway?

Moscow tomorrow. I will try to keep up with the blog but might not be able to post daily for a few days. Rest assured I will catch up when I get back.
