Misty campus evening

Thursday 10th January 2019, 4.30pm (day 2,695)

Misty campus evening, 10/1/19

A full day in Manchester, and into the evening as well. By late on the city had become clamped under a vast sea of fog; here at 4.30 the first inklings of it give a romantic quality to the older remaining campus buildings.

Waiting for the bus (that never came)

Tuesday 18th December 2018, 5.15pm (day 2,672)

Chorlton Street, 18/12/18

A damp, soggy evening, and when we potential passengers were told that the bus I was waiting for was to be half an hour late, I gave up and made other arrangements for the evening. So be it — this was my last day of work in Manchester of 2018, and frankly, for now, I’m just glad to see the back of the place. I need some downtime…

The M.E.C.D. rises

Tuesday 9th January 2018, 6.35pm (day 2,329)

MECD, 9/1/18

The MECD is the Manchester Engineering Campus Development and will save all our souls, or jobs, or something. What has broken ground so far are just a couple of corner pillars of the whole. Today’s photo is also a sign I pulled a late one at work this evening.

Walking home

Thursday 16th November 2017, 5.10pm (day 2,275)

Near Lewis building, 16/11/17

It gets darker and darker in the evenings so going home at this time feels later and later — even if it is the time most of us drones go home from work, of course.

Outside the pub, Friday evening

Friday 3rd November 2017, 5.25pm (day 2,262)

Outside Calans, 3/11/17

It might only have been a three-day week as far as I was concerned — but I’m still allowed to enjoy getting to the end of it.

Canal, November evening

Friday 21st November 2014, 4.45pm (day 1,184)

Canal towpath, 21/11/14

Didn’t even take a photo today until after the sun went down, which at this time of year is pretty early, and it’s going to get earlier yet. The evening was a very damp one, and hopefully this shot of the canal towpath reflects that (pun not intended).

Nutclough, dusk

Sunday 20th October 2013, 6.20pm (day 787)

Nutclough, dusk, 20/10/13

The night falls earlier and earlier — but of course that is the time of year. The real shock to the system will come a week from today, when the clocks go back.

Friday night out

Friday 4th October 2013, 9.20pm (day 771)

Clare club night, 4/10/13

Posted to prove I do occasionally have a Friday night out, with sexy companionship.

Greystone Bar, South Bank

Wednesday 17th April 2013, 8.25pm (day 601)

Greystone bar, 17/4/13

After five shots in a row of the QUT campus, or its immediate vicinity, time for a change of scene, and mood. This was taken across the river, opposite the South Bank cinema, where I went to see a movie tonight. (Which, if you’re interested, was Oblivion: it’s OK, good imagery, but there’s a huge plot hole in it — which I will leave you to discover for yourselves.)

Rainy evening, QUT

Saturday 13th April 2013, 5.50pm (day 597)

Rainy evening, QUT, 13/4/13

At home it should be getting warmer and lighter right now (and may well be – I can’t say I really care), but here, in accordance with the earth’s axial tilt, the evenings are darkening and there is a cooler feel to the air. Not that it has ever been exactly dry and summery since I arrived here, not in Brisbane anyway. Of more salience is the question of just what I was doing at work on campus until 5.50pm on a Saturday….
