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.

On a Sunday afternoon walk

Sunday 28th January 2018, 3.45pm (day 2,348)

Waiting dog, 28/1/18

“Come on a walk, they said. Lots of balls and squirrels to chase, they said. Hmmph. This don’t match my idea of fun. There aren’t even any crisps to eat.”

Left behind?

Friday 5th January 2018, 4.15pm (day 2,325)

Left behind, 5/1/18

As the St. George’s Square market packs up for the night, you can’t help wondering if one of the stall holders has forgotten something.

Waiting

Saturday 18th November 2017, 12.25pm (day 2,277)

Waiting dog, 18/11/17

In 2017, particularly since early June, I have been quite mobile, with lots of photos taken elsewhere. Where there have been bouts of time spent mainly at home they haven’t lasted long. But for the rest of the year, at least, this will change; if I do go elsewhere it’ll be for a walk or a football match, and that’ll be all. We are on Hebden time for a while. I hope I seem happier about this than this dog did today.

Sunny afternoon

Saturday 1st April 2017, 5.10pm (day 2,046)

Sunny afternoon, 1/4/17

An inactive day, even indolent, but this was much needed. Sunny later, with the promise of spring in the air and look, Japan — we have blossoms too!

Waiting in the rain

Monday 21st November 2016, 8.55am (day 1,915)

Waiting, 21/11/16

Wettest day for months today — a pretty grim day all round. I was not the only one who’d rather have been inside. Fortunately I spent most of it working at home, and this was a photowhack — the one and only picture I took today.

Beer garden

Beer garden, 22/9/16

Still sunny… but that little bit chillier, as we pass the Equinox and head into autumn.

In the park

Tuesday 5th July 2016, 5.30pm (day 1,776)

In the park, 5/7/16

Perhaps this shot would have been better with either one group or the other, but I like the split-screen nature of it with both. A nice evening in Hebden Bridge, much more amenable weather than in Manchester for most of the day, which is where I was.

Ellie and Maggie

Sunday 3rd July 2016, 3.00pm (day 1,774)

Ellie and Maggie, 3/7/16

Back in January 2015 Ellie (left, at that time aged 8 months) and Maggie (right) appeared on the blog in consecutive days; here they are together. Hard to credit that in the intervening 18 months Ellie has grown from a baby into a little girl with an entire functioning vocabulary. Time passes, we all change…

Sunday afternoon

Sunday 5th June 2016, 4.25pm (day 1,746)

White Lion yard, 5/6/16

Sunday afternoon, and a lazy one. Well, it was a very warm and sunny day and the last few days have been busy enough.
