Study space (abstract)

Tuesday 16th May 2023, 2.10pm (day 4,282)

Study space, 16/5/23

Did something I have not done for 11 days and went onto campus. It seemed busy today: ‘revision week’ has kicked in. This student was one of many using the various little pods and cubbyholes that are littered around the place. This is intended as an abstract, a study in yellow (or is it green?), shapes and shadows. And portrait format rather than landscape, something else I don’t do much of lately.

The reading room, Manchester Central library

Wednesday 8th October 2014, 12.40pm (day 1,140)

Reading room, 8/10/14

I was also here on Monday but blew my opportunity for a decent photo of it, so today gave me a second chance. Recently re-opened after what seems like years of renovation this is a classic, great, domed library reading room: too big, really, to get a photo of in its entirety, so today I tried a more intimate portrait. It’s great that I have had the chance to work in this excellent space this week, but then again, so has everyone else — for now, it’s open free to the public, you can just walk in. It’s called a public good, Mr. Cameron.

Revision week

Monday 19th May 2014, 11.25am (day 998)

Revision week, 19/5/14

The weather stays very fine. If one can find a piece of green space on the University campus — not always straightforward, seeing as there’s not much of it — there are far worse places to prepare for imminent exams.
