The former café

Wednesday 6th December 2017, 10.05am (day 2,295)

Ex-cafe, 6/12/17In the summer the university catering service decided they could no longer be troubled to run a café in my building at work — the seats still get used, but there’s no warmth to the place any more. Another shot with emptiness as its theme, like yesterday’s…. maybe this is some big existential crisis brewing.

Proteins priced individually

Wednesday 18th October 2017, 10.20am (day 2,246)

Café Muse, 18/10/17

“Hi. I’d like the chicken caesar salad, a potato salad, and a plate of glutamine synthetase, please.”

“Certainly madam. That’ll be £3.50 for the two salads, and we have a special on glutamine synthetase today at just £2.50 for a plate. Unless you’d prefer an orotidylate decarboxylase wrap, at just £1.95?”

In the café

Wednesday 31st August 2016, 2.05pm (day 1,833)

Caffe Nero, 31/8/16

Oxford Road again, but further up toward the city centre this time, and inside the café instead of outside. So ends August, a moment in time that feels like one candidate for ‘end of summer’ but I’m not declaring it over yet.

Tea break

Tuesday 16th February 2016, 9.40am (day 1,636)

Llangollen cafe, 16/2/16

Broke the drive back from Aberystwyth at this cafe in Llangollen, north-east Wales. Clare and Joe ponder the meaning of the universe or possibly just a very good few days.

Marco’s

Saturday 7th November 2015, 11.30am (day 1,535)

Marco's, 7/11/15

One of Hebden Bridge’s better cafés. I like this shot for the colours and how it encapsulates a much-needed day of relaxation for me.

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…

Browns Café, Leeds

Thursday 11th June 2015, 1.50pm (day 1,386)

Browns, 11/6/15

OK, I know it’s technically a pub, but hey, you’ve gotta have lunch somewhere. Photo arrangement courtesy of a particularly shiny table.

Bistro ‘Aux Marches du Palais’, lunchtime

Thursday 28th May 2015, 1.40pm (day 1,372)

Parisian bistro, 28/5/15

Going a bit out on a limb with this shot because it’s out of focus, but I think it captures quite well the atmosphere of this totally unreconstructed bistro which we stumbled across at lunchtime. Food, wine, this is why I came to Paris… (well, OK, I came for a conference, but y’know).

Outside ‘Flying Saucers’

Monday 25th May 2015, 4.05pm (day 1,369)

Flying saucers, 25/5/15

Clearing up after the Bank Holiday crowd. Saturday’s walk notwithstanding, it has not been the most eventful eight days, but there’ll be a burst of activity from tomorrow.

Riverside walkway

Sunday 30th November 2014, 10.50am (day 1,193)

River side, 30/11/14

St. Andrew’s Day, and a beautiful morning. This is the walkway down by the Hebden Water in town. I like the lines of the building, the trees in the background and the random arrangement of café paraphernalia waiting to see if any customers realised it was quite warm enough to sit outside despite it being the last day of November.
