The last rays of sun

Friday 13th September 2019, 6.20pm (day 2,941)

Clare in sun, 13/9/19

The end of a week, and some relaxation time was definitely called for. This one spot outside Calan’s holds the sunshine for as long as is becoming possible at this time of year, as the days decline. Clare makes the most of this, even though (and she did pre-approve the use of this pic) it does make her look like she is sporting some fine sideburns.

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.)
