The dentist’s hands (reprised)

Monday 12th November 2018, 4.25pm (day 2,636)

Dentist and Joe, 12/11/18

I do try not to repeat myself on here, but after 2,636 days it’s gonna happen, sorry — so here is another version of the shot offered on day 1,134, 2nd October 2014. Same hands, same dentist, and same person — Joe — being inspected. But also a better version of the shot, I feel. We come here every few months, roughly, so the next time you might see this is some time in late April next year. Or perhaps not.

Ring exchange

Tuesday 16th October 2018, 12.30pm (day 2,609)

Fingers, 16/10/18

A week ago I injured my hand for reasons which were unnecessary to share on here at the time and there’s nothing to be gained in revealing them now. The specific location of this injury was the ring finger of my left hand, which is where I’ve been wearing my silver wedding band since 2nd July 1999. This finger is currently strapped to its neigbour, and (not so apparent on this photo) is swelled up like a comedy cartoon appendage, Yosemite Sam’s hand after he has had it whacked by Bugs Bunny, that kinda thing. So I can’t wear my ring, for the first time in 19 years.

Fortunately the wife has agreed to accommodate it. Isn’t she sweet? That’s it, down there.

The Hand of Stoke

Saturday 18th August 2018, 12.15pm (day 2,550)

Hand of Stoke, 18/8/18

Finding myself on Stoke-on-Trent railway station for half an hour today, and time therefore to ponder this sculpture: not so much why is it there at all (for there should be more public art if you ask me), but why tuck it down the very far end of platform 2 where hardly anyone ever goes?

The blue post may seem an intrusion but I like it. The photo becomes a study of the various lines going both across and down.

Doug makes a connection

Sunday 21st January 2018, 3.25pm (day 2,341)

Playing connections, 21/1/18

I’m still not particularly well, and despite a tolerable interlude yesterday the weather basically continues very crappy: ‘Outside’ at the moment is a euphemism for ‘Being sprayed with icy precipitation in a variety of forms’. So, more board games then. And a visit from Doug, who thereby makes — in part — his third appearance on the blog.

Chilling out, Leeds station

Sunday 9th April 2017, 2.00pm (day 2,054)

On the train, 9/4/17

Generally the theme over the last few days has been relaxation, and this seems to be the state of mind of this lady on the train to London this afternoon, particularly as this shot was taken before we had even left Leeds station. I did my best to adopt such an attitude today as well, despite the need to go down to London yet again to hang around at an embassy (you might see this tomorrow)….

Reaching down

Friday 2nd September 2016, 3.20pm (day 1,835)

British Library hands, 2/9/16

What significance this sculpture has, I have no idea — it currently hangs above the gift shop of the British Library. I guess I should invent some meaning…. but it’s the weekend.

The dentist’s hands

Thursday 2nd October 2014, 4.20pm (day 1,134)

Dentist hands, 2/10/14

The biannual trip to the tooth doctor is usually good for a pic — if only because it’s a well-lit activity. This is at least the second time Joe has been pictured mid-examination and I think I got one of myself in once, too. The next visit is in March, if you notice this kind of thing.

Clare, writing

Saturday 7th June 2014, 5.20pm (day 1,017)

Clare writing, 7/6/14

Pictured in the Railway. I need to find variety; day 1,000 came towards the beginning of a full month of time, 31 days (16th May – 15th June) where I will only have one photo outside Hebden Bridge and Manchester, on 29th May. Motivation to keep this blog going comes from the different places I visit, but I also like finding the different shots from familiar territory as well.

Still life (nearly)

Friday 5th October 2012, 12.25pm (day 407)

Fruit bowl, 5/10/12

Post-lunch pickings on the second day of the staff development workshop I have been running at the University of Bergen. The strawberries and pineapple slices have disappeared, the grapes are going down well but no one seems to be going for the lychees. This is the second disembodied hand of the week, I note.

Baby slug

Monday 23rd July 2012, 6.45pm (day 333)

Baby slug, 23/7/12

Joe was on the first weekday of his summer vacation from school. I’m still at work for another three weeks, however, before I get my summer break. Didn’t get out much today: the best photo opportunity was this visitor, who came in one a lettuce that – against all the odds – has managed to grow into an edible state (for more than one species). Slugs grow up into unpleasant, irritating creatures, but this baby was cute enough in its way.
