Excessive tie-dye

Sunday 27th May 2018, 10.00am (day 2,467)

Hippy shirts, 27/5/18

Bank Holiday weekend. The stalls are out to capture the tourists. Clearly we have become the Yorkshire equivalent of Nimbin, perceived as a hippy enclave. No one round here wears this. Well, OK, maybe a couple of people.

Shoes, Thursday market

Thursday 29th March 2018, 4.10pm (day 2,408)

Shoe stall, 29/3/18

Another very uneventful, badly lit and photographically uninspiring day — but at least it marked my last day of work before a 10-day break. Expect… expect… well, not much out of the ordinary to tell the truth but at least I won’t be working until 9th April.

Mediterranean food stall

Sunday 11th February 2018, 3.25pm (day 2,362)

Sunday market, 11/2/18

The weather remains glorious (sarcasm warning), thus provoking a wilfully uneventful weekend. The Mediterranean food stall at the Sunday market does its best in very non-Mediterranean conditions.

Left behind?

Friday 5th January 2018, 4.15pm (day 2,325)

Left behind, 5/1/18

As the St. George’s Square market packs up for the night, you can’t help wondering if one of the stall holders has forgotten something.

Market stalls

Wednesday 1st March 2017, 4.45pm (day 2,015)

Market stalls, 1/3/17

March 2017 is scheduled to be an eventful month for me: by the time it ends I will have gone to both Japan and the Arctic (north Norway), so there’ll hopefully be plenty of photographic inspiration. It didn’t start eventfully however — a quiet day working at home. The market in Hebden Bridge runs on Wednesdays and Thursdays, here the stalls have been cleared but remain up in readiness for tomorrow. Plenty of good lines on this shot — which may or may not be perpendicular to each other.

Taking down the market

Thursday 21st January 2016, 5.00pm (day 1,610)

Dismantling the market, 21/1/16

Well, 1,610 days in and I’m still here…. Facebook friends may know what I mean. Maybe this is the point though… What you see here is a scene which happens every Thursday in Hebden Bridge at this same time of day. But I don’t think I’ve ever pictured it before, and even if I did it wasn’t in this light, in this slight drizzle, and so on (including heroic flare for the second day in a row). I’ll do my best to keep seeing the moments.

Tod market

Tuesday 1st December 2015, 2.45 pm (day 1,559)

Tod market, 1/12/15

Todmorden market‘s second appearance on the blog — though I never seem to actually catch it open. Perhaps it’s just better this way.

The Puppet Shop

Thursday 19th November 2015, 6.10pm (day 1,547)

Puppet shop, 19/11/15

As pictured at the Manchester Christmas market, which opened this week. He can consider it free advertising. This makes it 28 days in a row, or a full four weeks, with only pictures of Hebden Bridge and Manchester.

Sunday market stallholders

Sunday 13th September 2015, 10.40am (day 1,480)

Sunday market, 13/9/15

The hair of the woman on the left, lit by the weak sun behind, was what caught my eye on this one, but I like the face of the other stallholder too.

Cutlery for sale

Wednesday 10th June 2015, 9.10am (day 1,385)

Cutlery, 10/6/15

Wednesday morning means the bric-a-brac market in Hebden Bridge. I stood by this ‘display’ (a pink storage box) long enough to get this single pic but at that point the stallholder, attracted by some logo I had on the random T-shirt I threw on that morning, started a conversation with me and I decided that if I took another one I would be expected to shell out on cutlery. We don’t need cutlery, so I moved on. I dunno, the thrills of a day working at home, huh.
