Bike rack, underused

Tuesday 6th October 2020, 2.10pm (day 3,330)

This idea of ‘underuse’ has been a recurring theme lately — but there are obvious reasons for that, and it is going to become even more the case now that uni have decided that, after all, they would rather not teach face-to-face, ‘at least’ until the end of October. Which is, conveniently, after everyone’s arrived and paid their rent. Don’t blame me — I oppose the decision, and rather vehemently too. But it seems this opinion is now in the minority.

Gone to Liverpool (maybe)

Monday 6th November 2017, 11.15am (day 2,265)

Victoria bike, 6/11/17

Or Southport, or Bury, which are other towns named on the facade of Victoria station in Manchester and to where one can still catch a train…. unlike Fleetwood, Goole and other places where trains haven’t gone from here in a long time. Hope he/she locked their bike securely, wherever it was.

Aquatic Park Pier, San Francisco

Sunday 29th March 2015, 10.35am (day 1,312)

Aquatic Park pier, 29/3/15

So here I am for a week in San Francisco, surely one of the world’s best and most recognisable cities. This is one of its more neglected corners, a crumbling pier that stretches out into the Bay to the north of the city centre, with the Golden Gate Bridge behind it — one of its piers is visible in the background. As  you can see, today I avoided the fog and chill for which the city is notorious. Plenty more to see yet, I hope.

Cyclist in sun

Saturday 7th March 2015, 3.25pm (day 1,290)

Sun and cyclist, 7/3/15

I don’t expect this photo to win any awards and I could have done better with the light today on what was a beautiful spring day. But sometimes the opportunities just don’t arise. This’ll do — and it was still a lovely day.

Canal side

Saturday 7th February 2015, 11.35am (day 1,262)

Canal side, 7/2/15

After a cold and snowy few days in Norway, back home, to a less snowy but still cold Hebden Bridge. The bicycle hanging by the canal is a legacy of when it was much warmer, back in July, and the Tour de France came zipping by.

Beneath the ‘no fly tipping’ sign

Saturday 27th December 2014, 11.35am (day 1,220)

No fly tipping, 27/12/14

The sign posted to the lamppost says ‘no fly tipping’. It’s irony, isn’t it. That bike’s been there for a couple of weeks now I come to think of it. And yes, it snowed last night, if only lightly. But the run of not having been near any since 21/1/13 is broken.

Platform 1, Hebden Bridge station

Tuesday 2nd September 2014, 8.40am (day 1,104)

Platform 1, 2/9/14

Sometimes the shot is just a consequence of being stood in the right spot at the right time, isn’t it? And you wait ages for a photogenic plastic bag to come along, then there’s two in two days…
