Dull day

Monday 14th November 2022, 10.05am (day 4,099)

Dull day, 14/11/12

A dull day in every sense. The glorious sunshine that we experienced on Saturday has been replaced by grey mist and drizzle. This explains a lot about the British psyche. Don’t get used to it being nice, because within a couple of days it’ll all turn to crud again.

Captions

Captions, Leeds, 13/11/22

It looks like I may have laid these captions over the photo with some editing software but that’s not the case. Instead these were hanging above Briggate, in Leeds, because someone had clearly decided that positive-sounding, but actually meaningless, exhortations to solidarity are just what the country needs to get us through this time of incompetency.

King Cross cemetery

Sunday 19th December 2021, 10.40am (day 3,769)

King Cross cemetery, 19/12/21

Two days in a row for Halifax, and two in a row clamped under an oppressive blanket of mist. In some parts of the town this morning visibility was down to ten yards. In the background of this shot, like some massive memorial, rises Wainhouse Tower, making its second appearance in less than two months and its third overall. (World’s tallest folly, etc. etc.)

Brendan the busker

Saturday 18th December 2021, 2.50pm (day 3,768)

Halifax busker, 18/12/21

The cobbled streets and misty feel give this shot a Victorian look — except perhaps for the Rolex and No Entry signs. But we can ignore them. Would the Victorians have engaged in this much paranoia? Who knows. But Brendan — see his guitar case — doesn’t seem to care, and I’m all for that.

Misty morning

Misty morning, 17/12/21

Friday, and the last day of work before Christmas. Spent at home, but it’s all done now, and the views were good in the morning.

Apple tree, in hibernation

Sunday 10th January 2021, 11.15am (day 3,426)

Apple tree, 10/1/21

We might as well all hibernate, mightn’t we. The apple tree needed pruning, though, and deepest winter is the time to do it, according to those who know. The shot reflects the greyness of the day and the other clouds, the ones that currently separate us from each other. I feel like I’m on an extended break from the rest of humanity.

Cromer Pier

Wednesday 23rd December 2020, 12.15pm (day 3,408)

Cromer Pier, 23/12/20

If given the chance I would remove the white lines on the bottom right and there’s a little red sign between the benches that bothers me. But otherwise I am satisfied with this shot of the landward end of Cromer Pier which evokes a misty but pleasant day doing very little in North Norfolk, waiting…

Hebden heron on a misty morning

Monday 21st September 2020, 7.55am (day 3,315)

Heron over Hebden, 21/9/20

The view from my house. The picture was of the mists, with the mobile phone mast on the other side of the valley just peeking through.  The heron (for that is what it is) flying over was an added bonus.

Get used to pictures from home. The whole moronic farce is kicking off again.  If you’re an easy target, expect to be put back under house arrest soon enough.

Misty vista

Wednesday 16th October 2019, 10.10am (day 2,974)

Misty house view, 16/10/19

A couple of weeks at home loom, and today was spent entirely there. At least, for blog purposes, I do have things to look at out of the window — mist, and mast.

Misty campus evening

Thursday 10th January 2019, 4.30pm (day 2,695)

Misty campus evening, 10/1/19

A full day in Manchester, and into the evening as well. By late on the city had become clamped under a vast sea of fog; here at 4.30 the first inklings of it give a romantic quality to the older remaining campus buildings.
