Early morning stepwork

Thursday 2nd May 2019, 7.30am (day 2,807)

Steps, 2/5/19

Second day in a row of some solitary bloke wandering around Manchester. Which is appropriate enough, because that’s how I’ve felt as my Unsabbatical continues this week. I have been walking past the bottom of these steps fairly frequently since the blog began, they make it today because of what I think is a happy combination of pedestrian and tree, the latter framing the top of the shot in a pleasant wave. A split second later and I’d have been too late. But then again I was feeling sluggish at 7.30am on a Thursday.

Walls and windows

Hebden housing, 5/4/19

Excitement and/or variety are not really on the agenda this week, but so be it. I have a crappy cold, anyway. The distinctive topography of my home town is usually good for a picture of some kind, so saves the day here.

Sitting on the steps

Monday 17th September 2018, 3.25pm (day 2,580)

EWB steps, 17/9/18

Day one of Welcome Week — and so there came a time in the day when we all needed to have a break. Picture taken through my office window, making it the third  in the last five days to be taken through glass. It also adds to the increasing lead of the 3.00 – 3.55pm time slot when it comes to the overall pattern of shot timing (see the stats), a statistical blip I attribute mainly to football matches kicking off at 3pm. But that is just personal trivia.

Granite City steps

Thursday 29th June 2017, 6.05pm (day 2,135)

Bridge Street steps, 29/6/17

Aberdeen is known as the Granite City and for good reason, as almost every building in the centre seems to be made of this mid-grey stone. It’s not unattractive, but on a day of foul weather like today was the effect can be to swamp you in grey. This picture was a matter of being in the right place at the right time, but yes, I could perhaps have been six inches to the right for perfect symmetry.

Not as helpful as it first appears

Thursday 12th January 2017, 8.25am (day 1,967)

Unhelpful door, 12/1/17

The second door in two days. This one not as helpful as it first appears. The irony is obvious if you read the sign. Dedicated to my friend Doug, who collects this kind of thing.

St. Peter’s chaplaincy steps

Wednesday 3rd July 2013, 12.25pm (day 678)

St Peter's steps, 3/7/13

Second day in a row in Manchester, that hasn’t happened since January. Familiar territory, but new in that I’ve never managed to catch anyone blowing their nose before. I didn’t set out to take such a shot; but that’s street photography for you. Taken on the steps of St. Peter’s, the University’s Catholic chaplaincy.
