More soldiers from the hi-vis army

Tuesday 2nd July 2019, 10.40am (day 2,868)

MECD and hi-vis, 2/7/19

I had declared an unofficial moratorium on pictures of building sites in Manchester but I don’t mind this one. What it does not show is the huge scale of the Manchester Engineering Campus Development (MECD: eventually to be renamed after some corporate donor or other I’m sure). Since being depicted rising from the ground back in January 2018 it has taken on vast scale, like a modern cathedral. No wonder my employer is worried about its cash reserves.

Towpath repairs

Tuesday 9th October 2018, 9.20am (day 2,602)

Towpath repairs, 9/10/18

One of the hi-vis army does his valuable stuff on the banks of the Rochdale Canal. A beautiful morning today, and a real ‘Indian Summer’ day. Fine by me.

Monday morning cup of tea

Monday 4th June 2018, 9.55am (day 2,475)

Monday morning tea, 4/6/18

Started the first day of my working week in London, travelled to Manchester, finished it at home in Hebden Bridge. This guy may not have left Argyle Square in that time, but I’m sure he was just as productive as me in the end. I like all the vaguely different colours of brick on this shot.

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.

Working on Sunday

Sunday 26th November 2017, 11.20am (day 2,285)

Track workers, 26/11/17

These guys were not the only ones working on this Sunday — though at least I combined my bout of labour with a trip to York for pleasant social reasons. But that journey contained no photos that I liked, so we’ll go with this one, captured a few minutes before getting on the train to said destination.

Site entrance (orange and blue)

Wednesday 27th September 2017, 5.40pm (day 2,225)

Site entrance, 27/9/17

In Manchester this week, yes, but it feels like a brief interlude, my October looks a little different than in previous years for various reasons. One constant though — Manchester’s a building site. It seems always to have been one, and possibly, now always will be one.
