Friday night by the willows

Friday 18th December 2020, 4.35pm (day 3,403)

Lit willows, 18/12/20

Another Friday night passes. Not just an ordinary Friday either, but the last working day of 2020, the start of the run-up to Christmas, ‘Mad Friday’, it goes by many names. And here we are, trying to feel human and social while sat by the river looking at the willows, here illuminated by headlights shining from the car park above our heads. It’s life, Jim, but not as we know it.

Outside, where I was not

Monday 14th December 2020, 4.35pm (day 3,399)

Nutclough evening, 14/12/20

A blurred, inadequate shot. But one day will come the day when there is nothing to photograph, and lately I feel I’ve been getting close to that. December gloom, a day spent marking. Out there are people in their little bubbles, and sometimes, a car drives by. Welcome to party season.

Sunset view

Tuesday 24th November 2020, 3.55pm (day 3,379)

House sunset, 24/11/20

Went into Manchester and back, and did hope to get a photo from there to provide more variety to the locations. But it’s been a while since the view from the house at sunset made it: and today seemed a good day to return to that theme. Red sky at night is good news, right?

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).
