The fans of Union St. Gilloise

Sunday 4th August 2019, 4.00pm (day 2,901)

Union St Gilloise, 4/8/19

Union St Gilloise FC won 11 Belgian football championships before the rest of the country caught up (that is, before WW2); since then they have become a decidedly minor team in the landscape of Belgian football, but that doesn’t mean their fans can’t have a bit of fun on the first day of the season. And as a photographically-motivated tourist, I have to say, why the hell not.

Passers-by, Market Street

Wednesday 3rd May 2017, 8.40am (day 2,078)

Market Street, 3/5/17

Another nice morning and a sunny day followed. Off we all go to work in our various ways — or possibly, come home again.

In my bedroom, evening

Monday 22nd August 2016, 6.45pm (day 1,824)

Bedroom smoke, 22/8/16

Spent part of the day in Manchester but there was little to be seen there. I prefer this enigmatic shot for today, which I feel not at all like explaining….

Chimney pot

Wednesday 30th March 2016, 11.55am (day 1,679)

Chimney pot, 30/3/16

I am off work, but this is in no way the most eventful Easter break of my life. Nor the least chilly. Both facts lead to today;s photo being evidence of the fire being lit in the house across the road today — at lunchtime.

Rooves and chimneys

Sunday 23rd November 2014, 2.55pm (day 1,186)

Chimneys, 23/11/14

Another well-lit afternoon, with the last rays of the day catching the smoke from these November fires. 3pm is as late as we get sunlight in the valley at this time of year — 10 minutes after this all is in shadow.

Autumn bonfire

Saturday 11th October 2014, 3.40pm (day 1,143)

Bonfire, 11/10/14

Not natural clouds coming down the valley, as posted a few days ago — this fire was unnatural. But hey, it’s autumn. There’s lots to burn.

Smoke break

Tuesday 9th October 2012, 10.55am (day 411)

Smoke break, 9/10/12

This couple were pictured outside the Sackville Building at the University of Manchester this morning, which was incidentally another beautiful, but chilly one.

Do I talk too much on this blog? Do I need to say why I find this picture aesthetically pleasing? I’ll leave it.
