Start of the journey

Monday 28th October 2019, 7.35am (day 2,986)

HB station, gold, 28/10/19

One of those days where I travelled quite some distance, took quite a few photos of places I had not been before, yet am obilged to admit that the very first one of the day was the best — taken in the familiar surroundings of Hebden Bridge rail station. Ah, the station in the morning — those first steps on a journey that could lead one anywhere. Until, in my case, one gets as far as Preston then has to sit out a 70-minute delay thanks to Virgin Trains not really being bothered. Which pops the romantic bubble somewhat. But at 7.35am all that lay in the future.

Autumn foliage

Monday 24th September 2018, 1.15pm (day 2,587)

Oulu foliage, 24/9/18

The further north you go, the earlier the trees turn. Those who want to see displays like this in late September, come to northern Finland. The back of the traffic sign gives nice contrast.

Will he kiss her?

Bench by the river, 20/1/18

He did do so, a couple of minutes later. Yes, I do have a photo of that moment as well, but there was too much flare on it and anyway they can keep their privacy in that respect.

November trees

Trees, 19/11/17

Seems superfluous to add much commentary. A truly beautiful late autumn day today.

Platform 5, Leeds station

Saturday 4th February 2017, 4.10pm (day 1,990)

Platform 5 Leeds, 4/2/17

Once again, Leeds becomes the place to change trains when on the way to somewhere else for an evening out: but once again it was quite fertile territory for photography today, bathed in golden late afternoon light. I had a couple to choose from today but in the end went with this one due to the randomly bendy child. Like a stray piece of wind just tried to whisk him away.

Chinese arch

Monday 7th December 2015, 2.55pm (day 1,565)

Chinese arch, 7/12/15

Crap news about the floods in Cumbria which have left several places I am quite fond of under considerable amounts of water, including Carlisle (featured on this blog only just over two weeks ago), Lancaster and various chunks of the Lake District. Unbelievable amounts of rain fell, around twelve inches in 24 hours in some places.

Meanwhile, a little further south, it’s been a bit wet but that’s all. In fact today in Manchester was rather pleasant. The Chinese arch makes its third, and most golden, appearance on the blog.

Golden light, University of Manchester

Thursday 3rd November 2011, 3.55pm (day 70)

Golden light, 3/11/11

I know if I keep repeating it too long this ‘golden light, golden colours’ theme might start to get a little wearing. But surely we can’t sustain this for much longer, so let’s make the most of it while it lasts.
