Outside the Marlborough Arms, Bloomsbury

Monday 20th June 2022, 8.10pm (day 3,952)

Outside Marlborough Arms, 20/6/22

Ahh, London. Bloomsbury. Sunset lighting up the chimney stacks, me in a pub enjoying the evening light. A day of feeling like a scholar for a change and not some glorified teaching machine. Amen to that.

The chimneys of Windsor Road

Tuesday 4th January 2022, 1.55pm (day 3,785)

A return to work, whatever that means these days — for me it was mainly email. But the sun was shining outside, and on the rooves of houses up the valley. 2021 was only four days old when it cranked to a halt, but things are going better for ’22 thus far. Just about.

Chimney pots

Chimney pots, 10/9/16

A weekend at home, but the weather is still pleasant and the good evening light allows for photo opportunities even with the mundane sights around the place.

Roof with a view

Wednesday 10th August 2016, 11.45am (day 1,812)

Roof work, 10/8/16

Not a bad morning for it, though there was rain later. This is never going to be a position you ever see me in, by the way.

Birchcliffe hillside, Hebden Bridge

Sunday 12th July 2015, 11.50am (day 1,417)

Birchcliffe hillside, 12/7/15

Only two of the last 19 days’ pictures have been taken in Hebden Bridge, or three if you count yesterday’s in Mytholmroyd, which is just down the road. But I have a couple of weeks here now before my trip to Tanzania, so time to find some inspiration around home. I bet your town doesn’t look quite like this.

Rooves and chimneys

Sunday 23rd November 2014, 2.55pm (day 1,186)

Chimneys, 23/11/14

Another well-lit afternoon, with the last rays of the day catching the smoke from these November fires. 3pm is as late as we get sunlight in the valley at this time of year — 10 minutes after this all is in shadow.

The rooves of Nutclough

Thursday 18th September 2014, 4.20pm (day 1,120)

Nutclough rooves, 18/9/14

Today was not a great deal more active, or well-lit, than yesterday, but now and again there are still new things to be found in the immediate vicinity of the house. These are the rooves of our neighbours, the road curving down the hill towards the town, viewed from our attic room.

Nutclough and Eiffel Buildings, Hebden Bridge

Sunday 1st April 2012, 9.20am (day 220)

Nutclough rooves, 1/4/12

It’s been interesting to use the progress of this blog to check the movement of the sun across the sky. Back in December it was setting behind the mobile phone mast you see here (and here); now it sets behind the houses much further round the valley. And the light hits bits and pieces of the architecture in slowly changing ways each week. Like this morning, when I looked out from my house and saw these chimney stacks lit up while the rest of the streets beneath were still in shadow.
