In Allestree Park

Sunday 14th June 2020, 10.25am (day 3,216)

Allestree Park, 14/6/20

Sunday. Nominally a day of rest. Time to take in a bit of nature and contemplate the meaning of life, or whatever else takes one’s fancy. Time to bag my first urban county top, hence why I dragged the family to Derby today, making this the city’s third appearance on the blog. But a good day was had. If only the pubs would open.

Mid-December playground

Saturday 14th December 2019, 12.40pm (day 3,033)

December playground, 14/12/19

Grim and bleak seem to have been themes for a few days now, and with this particular mid-December being even grimmer and bleaker than is normal for the time of year, the theme is likely to continue. Is Limeside Park in Oldham a more welcoming place on a sunny day in May? Of course it is, but then again, so is everywhere.

Memorial Gardens, Hebden Bridge

Sunday 1st September 2019, 5.00pm (day 2,929)

Memorial gardens, 1/9/19

A pleasant afternoon. Too bold with the tree trunk — too much sunlight? Well, perhaps I am feeling bold. Time passes, as autumn progresses it will not be long before this scene will no longer be lit at 5pm on any given day.

Calder Holmes Park, Sunday morning

Calder Holmes footie, 13/1/19

For once, a football match captured in passing, rather than one I specifically attended. Calder Holmes Park, in town, is a picturesque spot to get competitive on a Sunday morning. One for the traditionalists…

In the park

In the park, 5/7/16

Perhaps this shot would have been better with either one group or the other, but I like the split-screen nature of it with both. A nice evening in Hebden Bridge, much more amenable weather than in Manchester for most of the day, which is where I was.

In the park

Sunday 3rd April 2016, 3.05pm (day 1,683)

Memorial park, 3/4/16

Spring is hardly barrelling in with both guns blazing but there are hints of it here and there in Hebden Bridge…. Last day of my Easter break today, one of the most uneventful in history, but in terms of relaxation it cannot be faulted. Back to work tomorrow though (but then don’t expect a great deal more eventfulness then, either).

Memorial Gardens, Hebden Bridge

Sunday 15th April 2012, 12.15pm (day 234)

Memorial gardens, 15/4/12

No particular story behind this one, just a photo to encapsulate what was a nice, sunny day – although a chilly one.

Back to work tomorrow after 11 days off. Well, I suppose it’s gotta be done now and again.
