A veil of cobwebs

Wednesday 20th June 2018, 12.25pm (day 2,491)

Cobwebbed statue, 20/6/18

This statue in St. George’s Fields wears her cobwebs before her like a veil. This park used to be a cemetery: London does give good cemetery, amongst other things (see Highgate). It’s one of my favourite little spots in London but not as tranquil as it could be at the moment thanks to building works, which proliferate, increasingly, everywhere. Maybe that’s why she wears the veil.

Spring cleaning needed?

Cobweb, 12/3/18

A profoundly uneventful day, spent entirely at home, working, with grey light. Time to poke around in the dusty corners of the house to get a usable photo — and to be thinking that maybe it was time they were made a little less dusty.

Hammock/web

Sunday 9th July 2017, 1.25pm (day 2,145)

Hammock/web, 9/7/17

Continuing to clear the allotment, I find this cobweb behind the most concealed of our collection of water butts. I like its dappling by sunlight and the way that tiny flower has fallen onto and nestled into it, pushing down delicately, like it’s a meniscus or the most fragile of hammocks one can imagine.

Old locomotive cab, Oxenhope station

Wednesday 16th April 2014, 12.30pm (day 965)

Loco cab, 16/4/14

Just an abstract, really. I like the cobweb hanging from the coal chute in this old cab. I don’t think the loco has been abandoned, it just hasn’t been used for a while.

Railings and cobweb, my front doorstep

Monday 19th September 2011, 9.50am (day 25)

Railings and cobweb, front doorstep, 19/9/11

Today was the first day of the new academic year in Manchester. I skulked at home and hid away so profoundly that I never even left the house, the first such day while doing this blog. So I had to find inspiration at home. My old Victorian house is helpful in that regard, if only because of its occasional decrepitude. This is by my front door step – the furthest I got out today. I’ll meet the new students tomorrow.
