Flame tree

Friday 4th November 2022, 11.05am (day 4,089)

Flame tree, 4/11/22

Onto campus for a day that was less-than-inspiring, but at least the sun was shining. This tree caught the light very well as I transitioned across Oxford Road for a much-needed cup of tea.

Spectator accommodation, Sunday morning

Sunday 9th May 2021, 10.45am (day 3,545)

Social distancing not a problem at Sabden FC of the Pendle Charity Sunday League. Actually there were about 30 people watching, and presumably most of them went home happy enough after their morning’s entertainment as the home team won 9-0. The main stand of the Nutter Barn ground is, endearingly, made from a recycled bus shelter. The photographer’s bag makes an appearance to bottom left.

Waiting for the bus (that never came)

Tuesday 18th December 2018, 5.15pm (day 2,672)

Chorlton Street, 18/12/18

A damp, soggy evening, and when we potential passengers were told that the bus I was waiting for was to be half an hour late, I gave up and made other arrangements for the evening. So be it — this was my last day of work in Manchester of 2018, and frankly, for now, I’m just glad to see the back of the place. I need some downtime…

Kilburn Building (and bus stops)

Wednesday 14th February 2018, 11.45am (day 2,365)

Kilburn building, 14/12/18

So, I see it’s a year ago today that I posted my 2,000th picture. In a couple of weeks it’ll be six-and-a-half years since I started this blog. But there are still little takes on the Uni of Manchester campus I haven’t tried yet. Even if they aren’t quite straight.

Bus stop on the moor

Monday 4th September 2017, 5.45pm (day 2,202)

Bleak bus stop, 4/9/17

There must be bus stops something like this one in Hell. It’s the blanket that gets me, too. What was I doing here at 5.45 on a Monday? Well, there could be many reasons.

Joe has ideas

Wednesday 8th February 2017, 6.50pm (day 1,994)

Joe in Mytholmroyd, 8/2/17

Accompanied Joe to an evening st school sorting out his choices of GCSE options in year 10: the latest step in the process by which dreams and aspirations become squeezed into systemic categories. But he seems keen enough. Here, am I trying to represent said aspirations? Is it a moody and atmospheric shot (in the unglamorous surroundings of the bus stop in Mytholmroyd)? Or just a bad photo?

Prague bus stop

Saturday 8th October 2016, 5.50pm (day 1,871)

Prague bus stop, 8/10/16

So here we are in this blog’s 26th featured country, the Czech Republic, for a few days. I am here to attend the same conference that got me to Estonia last year and Croatia the year before that. There will be more interesting regions of it to depict between now and Thursday I am sure, but once I arrived at the airport this afternoon I just trundled through suburbia until I got to my hotel then went out with a couple of colleagues and had dinner; so this suburban bus stop is all you get for now. I do like the twenty-feet-high woman on the advertising mural, however. I wonder if I can get one just like her on my house.

Stand F, Infirmary Street, Leeds

Friday 16th September 2016, 5.25pm (day 1,849)

Bus stand F, 16/9/16

The first of what should be three days’ photos from Leeds. Today was spent there working, at least until 5pm… the next two will not be work. This is the kind of shot that only really works if one gets the symmetry exactly right, so what do you think?

Bus stop, Keighley Road

Sunday 6th September 2015, 2.20pm (day 1,473)

Bus stop, 6/9/15

It’s very Hebden Bridge, but I can live with this kind of thing.

Bus stop near ‘Revolution’, Oxford Road

Tuesday 7th January 2014, 10.10am (day 866)

Bus_stop, 7/1/14

The period since Christmas Eve has been very relaxing, but not very photographically inspiring. Three things have not helped this. One: I’ve been mostly isolated at home. Two: it’s been gloomy and grey. Three: the Mac died on 9th December and as yet had not been replaced.

Three things then happened today: One, I left the dale, only to Manchester, but it’s a change of scene; Two: the sun came out (in the morning anyway); Three: I have a Mac back 🙂  I like this picture, first one I’ve really thought was decent since Christmas Eve.
