More Friday night duckwatching

Friday 26th February 2021, 4.55pm (day 3,473)

Evening ducks, 26/2/21

Media rhetoric suggests we should all be grateful that Our Glorious Leaders have announced a ‘roadmap’ out of lockdown but none of that changes the fact that for now, and for weeks yet, there’s nothing to do. The ducks continue to have a far better social life than us, At least the evenings are getting lighter, the days (a little) warmer.

Handshakes

Thursday 15th August 2019, 6.35pm (day 2,912)

Church Fenton FC, 15/8/19

More football, I know, but it was that, or stay in by myself on a lovely August evening and give you a photo of a bloke loading a skip outside my house. At least the rim-light is good on this one.

Vista down Whitworth Street

Tuesday 30th October 2018, 3.55pm (day 2,623)

Whitworth Street, 30/10/18

I don’t make a point of mentioning it on here but my surname is Whitworth and Whitworth Street in Manchester is a significant thoroughfare that I am obliged to cross each time I walk to and from work. It’s about time I tried for a decent photo of it. Taken while crossing the road — I do try always to cross this street carefully, it would just be too embarrassing to be run over on an eponym.

3.55pm and there’s a sunset cast to the sky…. It’s getting later earlier. If you see what I mean.

Carlton Street (not much happening)

Friday 8th June 2018, 5.45pm (day 2,479)

Carlton Street, 8/6/18

A year ago today I was in Siberia and Britain was having its latest inconclusive and pointless electoral spasm. But early June 2018 is a highly uneventful time. With a cloudy day spent working at home I came as close as I have in any of these last 2,479 days to having nothing to photograph, and that’s eventually how this blog will end: there simply will be nothing more to say. Maybe this one doesn’t say much…  but it is, at least, something.

Sam Alex Building at sunset

Friday 1st December 2017, 4.05pm (day 2,290)

Sam Alex, sunset, 1/12/17

The Sam(uel) Alex(ander) Building is the one next to mine at work. Sun setting when leaving work already — but there’s still three weeks for the nights to get longer yet.

September sunset

Thursday 1st September 2016, 8.00pm (day 1,834)

Sunset, 1/9/16

September 2016’s first day was not an eventful one but it was perfectly decent — and ended very well.

Monday 29th August 2016, 6.05pm (day 1,831)

By Hebden Water, 29/8/16

Quite a Hebden-bound period of the blog — in the 20 days since we got back from North Wales, 13 shots have been here (and five of the rest in Manchester). Not so bad I guess but it’s time to get out a bit more. Still, I feel happy that the period signs off with a good shot, this duck and the evening light came together just so — and here’s a sign of where lens flare is integral to what I wanted from the picture.

In the garden

Monday 6th June 2016, 7.30pm (day 1,747)

Garden foliage, 6/6/16

The sun is shining, it was a beautiful day. In such circumstances it’s great to have the garden to hang out in on an evening. Although I suspect this foliage is a weed — raspberry probably, which seems to grow everywhere except where you actually want it to.

Outside Manchester cathedral

Wednesday 16th March 2016, 5.30pm (day 1,665)

Outside cathedral, 16/3/16

Another pleasant, sunny afternoon, although a chilly one. I know this shot would be better without the signs, but hey, that’s the clutter of modern life for you.

Sunset, Whitworth Street, Manchester

Friday 6th November 2015, 4.30pm (day 1,534)

Sunset, Whitworth Street, 6/11/15

After a week of gray, a spectacular sunset in Manchester city centre — I was far from being the only person trying to capture it tonight. One of those situations where if I’d had more time (instead of speed-walking the two miles from my office to Victoria station), I probably could have got a better shot.
