Play with me

Sunday 18th April 2021, 3.40pm (day 3,524)

Play with me, 18/4/21

“I don’t know who you are, but play with me anyway! Look, I have the Thing ready!”

Sunday afternoon — in a pub beer garden once again. Well, it’s still a novelty, and the sun is still shining.

Social distancing

Monday 25th January 2021, 11.25am (day 3,441)

Distanced dog, 25/1/21

The last time anyone other than myself or Joe was depicted on the blog was 4th January, the afternoon before Bojo the Clown put us all under house arrest again. Since then, portrait opportunities have been very rare. This can almost be considered a crowd by recent standards. Though even the dog now takes its lead from us and remains apart. Who’s going to actually start to rebuild the bridges? It won’t just happen.

You’re more interesting than him

Climbing Penn Hill, 9/12/20

The reason I came to Bath was to bag another of my County Top walks (see my other blog), the morbidly-named Hanging Hill. That was duly collected a few miles after taking this shot, from the ascent of Penn Hill, a slope of mud with a decent view of the city. During this climb I passed this dog walker, and his companion who seemed for some time to have decided that he was ditching his owner in favour of this new and more interesting person. You can’t just tell them you prefer cats, can you?

Dog for sale?

Friday 14th August 2020, 3.20pm (day 3,277)

Dog on stall, 14/8/20

Friday market, Hebden Bridge.  Things for sale: boots, bags, boxes…. and this dog perhaps? Or maybe it was just selling off a few of its spare possessions.  There was no human in sight.

Dog portrait, 12/7/20

Now the pubs have reopened, dogs are once again obliged to spend their Sundays wondering why their owners are not letting them just clamber over everyone else in the beer garden.  This one has given up on it all, and decided just to keep a close eye on the piece of litter: before it dozed off, anyway.

Marley

Sunday 12th January 2020, 5.20pm (day 3,062)

Marley, 12/1/20

Marley is the latest candidate for ‘honorary pub dog’ at the Railway, and here takes a brief rest while eyeing up the humans, making his strategic decisions as to which might be amenable to the offering of treats and affection.

Reggie and Annie (true love)

Wednesday 6th November 2019, 5.45pm (day 2,995)

Reggie and Annie, 6/11/19

Reggie and Annie are as true a couple as I have ever met. Somewhat out of focus though it is, I like this photo because it demonstrates that fact.

On platform 2, Hebden Bridge station

Saturday 24th August 2019, 1.15pm (day 2,921)

Man and dog, 24/8/19

No commentary to make, really — just a well-lit scene that I liked, as we all went our respective ways on this Saturday afternoon. I will note that today was the penultimate day of my 40s however…

David Bow-wow

Thursday 26th July 2018, 4.55pm (day 2,527)

Finn the dog, 26/7/18

This dog’s actual name is Finn, but with eyes like that the nickname David Bow-wow just seems right to me. He’s one of the more affectionate creatures you will meet.

An inanimate object with a secret inner life

Tuesday 27th March 2018, 12.10pm (day 2,406)

Tripod, 27/3/18

It’s student video-making season: Sissi (bottom left) becomes the latest to come to my office and point a camera at me for sundry purposes. While she reviewed her footage, I became intrigued by her tripod. This is an inanimate object with a secret inner life if ever there was one. People go to certain clubs dressed like this.
