Little library

Monday 15th March 2021, 3.50pm (day 3,490)

Little library, 15/3/21

Joe and I were supposed to be going to see The Who tonight — live in Leeds no less — first postponed from just under a year ago, but now cancelled altogether. Another little pleasure denied us. So in the absence of anything actually happening, here’s some abandoned furniture, on a slope. UPDATE; Clare informs me that this is not a lost object; in fact a number of them have been set up in various places in the Calder Valley, as another place for book-swapping. Lift up the top of the seat, and the books are inside, it seems.

Home for abandoned chairs

Thursday 17th September 2020, 4.00pm (day 3,311)

Wicker chair, 17/9/20

The sign is unreadable thanks to the light shining through the wicker, but it says “Please take this chair if you would like it.”  And our Clare is the kind of person who gives home to abandoned household objects like this, which is why we have no room in our house to swing a cat.  Well, not any particularly big ones.

In the Ulster Museum

Saturday 25th January 2020, 10.30am (day 3,075)

Ulster museum. 25/1/20

One of those shots which is a nice arrangement but the OCD in all of us goes, couldn’t you have straightened up the goddamn chairs. Really.

Solitary

Wednesday 4th December 2019, 10.50am (day 3,023)

Chair in garden, 4/12/19

Really didn’t feel like engaging with people today. Let this shot be a metaphor for that state of mind…. or perhaps, just the only thing I really felt like photographing today, up in the garden. At least the sun was shining. This was the day’s only redeeming feature.

Where’s the rest of me?

Thursday 4th October 2018, 9.30am (day 2,597)

Half a sofa, 4/10/18

Sofas left on the pavement, that’s one thing. But half a sofa? Like the single abandoned shoe, what’s the story here? Was it just one hell of a party? Has it been sheared off, caught in mid-transition through a wormhole to another dimension?

Waiting room

Wednesday 8th August 2018, 9.25am (day 2,540)

Waiting room, 8/8/18

The waiting room as a metaphor for life? It certainly feels true this week, though not in an unpleasant or frustrating way. The travels begin on Friday.

A place to sit

Wednesday 4th July 2018, 11.40am (day 2,505)

Courtyard chair, 4/7/18

We all need something like this. A place to sit and contemplate life, the sunshine and the adjacent building works (well, this is Manchester).

Pink litter

Monday 22nd January 2018, 12.20pm (day 2,342)

Pink litter, 22/1/18

Tory cuts notwithstanding there remains a decent municipal waste tip a couple of miles away and even if you can’t drive to that the council will pick up this kind of thing from your house. So, sorry, but what’s the fucking point in dumping a broken chair by the side of the river, in a now-inaccessible but visible and central spot, where it will presumably sit for several months? Mucky bloody bastards. I hate this kind of neglect. I could say it’s a middle-aged thing but actually I’ve always hated it.

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.
