Rainy morning

Rainy fire escape, 26/10/19

A rather mundane shot to mark the wife’s birthday — but she had a happy one, so I’m led to believe. It was, however, a very wet one, at least until the afternoon. This shot was taken from under the safety of an umbrella, which was much needed.

Fire escape, UiT

Monday 23rd April 2018, 1.30pm (day 2,433)

UiT fire exit, 23/4/18

Busy day’s work at the University of Tromsø (the world’s northernmost university). Views snatched out of windows were my best option photographically, on what was a bright sunny day — as it always seems to be here when I visit. I am developing a reputation as a sun god among the locals. I like the shapes on this one.

Fire escape

Arena stairway, 19/3/18

No big message today, I just like the shape it makes. And the little bloke in his hi-vis jacket.

Fire escapes, Chinatown

Fire escapes, 13/2/17

The weekend was pretty grotty all round but today was a far more pleasant day of weather, particularly in Manchester. These fire escapes catch the afternoon sun very well. I also like the way this looks like it could be in New York or somewhere — one of those American cities where the fire escapes zigzag down the fronts of all the old buildings, anyway.

What ho, it’s day 1,999 of the blog. There will be a small celebration tomorrow. Assuming I don’t finally blow it and leave the camera at home.

Tattooist’s, Manchester

Monday 4th January 2016, 10.30am (day 1,593)

Tattitude entrance, 4/1/16

How awesome is this. I want to go and get my next tattoo at this place simply because of this mural. Which, I suppose, is the point, but it doesn’t make it any less impressive.

Fire escape, Høgskolen i Bergen

Thursday 1st October 2015, 10.15am (day 1,498)

Fire escape, 1/10/15

Popped over to Norway on my way home…. I like this shot because for perhaps the first time ever not only does a litter bin not spoil the shot, it is absolutely crucial to it.

Fire escape, Ellen Wilkinson building

Fire exit, 16/10/14

Well-lit Moments During a Day on Campus, number several dozen and twenty. This is one of the secret entrances into my personal courtyard by the way, so consider it a clue to its whereabouts.

The back of the gym

Sunday 22nd September 2013, 3.40pm (day 759)

Fire escape, 22/9/13

In total contrast to most of the week which preceded it, today was a glorious day. Who knows, perhaps the last burst of genuine summer this year. The light made even this neglected, graffiti-tagged fire escape at the back of the gym look sort of romantic.

Block ‘Y’ fire escape

Wednesday 24th April 2013, 4.45pm (day 608)

Block P fire escape, 24/4/13

The weather has been very pleasant indeed for the last 10 days or so. The mugg and rumble of summer is gone, to be replaced by a lovely balmy, Mediterranean vibe. It’ll do me, anyway. Took a lot of photos round the QUT campus and riverfront today on my walks to and from work, and chose this one because it’s such a mundane spot, but looks beautiful in this light.
