Where’s the rest of me?

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

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

Bus stop, 6/9/15

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