Another Manchester Monday morning

Monday 9th July 2018, 7.15am (day 2,510)

By Urbis, 9/7/18

Since the addition of a 6.32 train service from Hebden to Manchester in the mornings I have been braving the earlier start more often as it is a civilised train with leg room. Hence the recent run of 7:00 – 7:45 shots from the city centre. I like the trilogy of red/orange on this shot. The social implications, less so.

Morning on China Lane

Tuesday 30th January 2018, 9.40am (day 2,350)

China Lane, 30/1/18

China Lane, Manchester, was until relatively recently part of the old warehouse district. However, due to its proximity to Piccadilly station, in the 21st century it has become full of apartbouhotiques and bars where you can buy £7 glasses of Lithuanian stout with plates of felched scallop on the side. But at least there are still places to sleep.

….as usual

Thursday 10th August 2017, 9.20am (day 2,177)

As usual, 10/8/17

The Arndale Centre, like most of the rest of Manchester city centre, is in a state of renovation; but Next is Open As Usual, so those of us passing can be reassured that living that lifestyle is still possible.

Outside King’s Cross

Sunday 13th November 2016, 8.10pm (day 1,907)

Outside King's Cross, 13/11/16

I try to keep this blog apolitical, but it’s not always easy. I was educated into the idea that we were making steady progress toward some better future. In 2016 that is a view of the world that, at best, has taken a severe blow. But at least someone is here with this guy.

Have a good day?

Friday 5th February 2016, 9.15am (day 1,625)

Homeless pitch, 5/2/16

The title of this post is taken from the graffiti in the background. I hope he did have a good day, but I have no way of knowing for sure.

Pitches for the homeless, under the Mancunian Way

Wednesday 5th November 2014, 9.45am (day 1,168)

Mancunian Way, 5/11/14

I have been giving some thought recently to this blog and what I want it to be. To cut a long story short I’ve decided to try and be more of a photographer than a blogger — and will try, as much as I can, to let the image stand alone, speak for itself (with the addition of a title and some tags, I guess). For a trial period I’m therefore going to stop posting little commentaries alongside the daily image, though I might still provide some basic information on the location.

Early Sunday morning, Leeds city centre

Sunday 23rd March 2014, 1.35am (day 941)

Leeds, Sunday morning, 23/3/14

Apart from any innate qualities this pic may have, it is about time I proved to the world that I do occasionally stop up past midnight now and again. This is taken near City Square, Leeds. One guy makes his way home, the other may already be there. The third of the 941 pictures to be taken between 1.00 – 1.59am.

Outside Selfridges, Manchester

Wednesday 12th February 2014, 4.15pm (day 902)

Outside Selfridges, 12/2/14

I will only add that tonight is a foul night, a real stinker. I hope this guy, and the thousands like him, end up somewhere warm, safe and dry.
