Altrincham Street extension

Tuesday 6th November 2018, 1.25pm (day 2,630)

Altrincham Street, 6/11/18

Altrincham Street marks one of the edges of the Manchester campus. Officially, it ends just behind where this shot was taken: here, we are looking through a gate that blocks off this extension, squeezing itself through the gap between the car park and the (overcrowded and inadequate) cross-Manchester railway line on the right. Why this shot, and the second monochrome shot in a row? I just like the perspectives. And it’s a kind of non-space, forgotten, unused. In some cities there’d be a whole thriving community down here.

A wet 49th

Sunday 26th August 2018, 11.55am (day 2,558)

Wet birthday, 26/8/18

After a few weeks of getting out and about, my 49th birthday was spent at home in Hebden Bridge, and this is the weather that greeted it. I’m sure it’s not a metaphor for my advancing years…. but it was rather a wet blanket (OK, that’s a metaphor). Onward, anyway, onward with my fiftieth year on the planet (good grief). But the travelling is over for a little while.

In very early (for a Monday morning)

Monday 18th June 2018, 7.35am (day 2,489)

Uni, early, 18/6/18

After three days in a rather blue theme, let’s go monochrome, which seems somehow fitting for the fact I was in work so early this morning this car park hadn’t even begun filling up. Still, it’s my only day in Manchester this week, so let’s be acceptant of it all.

Downtown Derby, Sunday morning

Sunday 5th February 2017, 10.10am (day 1,991)

Downtown Derby, 5/2/17

It was the city of Derby I was heading to last night for my evening out, and a very good evening out I had. Having not been there (blog-wise) before I was keen for the place to feature on the blog as the latest new location, but walking through it back to the railway station this morning, it really did feel like a very nondescript place. All car showrooms, parking lots and industrial estates. So the above is pretty much the best you’ll get of Derby on a Sunday morning. Sorry.

A sign?

Thursday 3rd March 2016, 12.50pm (day 1,652)

No exit, 3/3/16

Perhaps it’s a political statement. Perhaps it’s a metaphor for someone’s life: perhaps my own. Perhaps it’s just a picture of a car park barrier. Your call.

Health Centre car park

Monday 2nd November 2015, 8.20am (day 1,530)

Health centre car park, 2/11/15

After the gorgeousness and gorgeosity (oh my brothers) of yesterday, today was one of the dullest days imaginable. Hence this shot. But I guess I quite like the graffiti, painted over rather unsuccessfully.

Aquatics Centre car park

Car park, 16/2/15

A scene on the campus, often passed, never before photographed. Well, not by me anyway.
