Marley, 12/1/20

Marley is the latest candidate for ‘honorary pub dog’ at the Railway, and here takes a brief rest while eyeing up the humans, making his strategic decisions as to which might be amenable to the offering of treats and affection.

Joe on a Sunday morning

Sunday 10th November 2019, 9.50am (day 2,999)

On way to station, 10/11/19

Following my lament about the day’s football match on Saturday’s blog post, I shall not depict it — but here is Joe on his way to it, on a very pleasant November morning.

Golly, look what tomorrow is — day 3,000 of the blog. It would be nice to mark this with some momentous journey of some kind, but it ain’t gonna happen, as I will be spending the day working here in Hebden Bridge. But as with every other day on here, I will do my best — let us see what the light brings.

Awaiting the busker

Sunday 18th August 2019, 12 noon (day 2,915)

Awaiting the busker, 18/8/19

An empty stage, with a performance presumably to take place shortly — whether the gathered audience are in the mood for it or not on a Sunday lunchtime.

Sunday morning footie

Sunday 12th May 2019, 11.15am (day 2,817)

Old Earth footie landscape, 12/5/19

The football season comes to an end. At the very top, everything is won by those with the most money; at the lower levels, not necessarily. The Waiters Arms team in yellow shock their previously undefeated opponents, FC Panda, 2-1 to win the Mel Owens Invitational Cup on this sunny Sunday morning. You might not care, but 100 people turned up to see this.

Entrance to the cathedral

Sunday 25th November 2018, 11.00am (day 2,649)

By Regensburg cathedral, 25/11/18

I claim that this blog is apolitical but it is hard to avoid touching on certain subjects sometimes. Why does this kind of thing still happen in a world where there are enough resources to lift everyone — and certainly, at least, everyone in a very rich country like Germany, and a very rich part of it, like Bavaria — out of poverty? We become inured to it, it becomes normalised, until we don’t even see it any more. Maybe that’s all I can say with this photo: here it is, still.

On a Sunday afternoon walk

Sunday 28th January 2018, 3.45pm (day 2,348)

Waiting dog, 28/1/18

“Come on a walk, they said. Lots of balls and squirrels to chase, they said. Hmmph. This don’t match my idea of fun. There aren’t even any crisps to eat.”

Sunday afternoon

Sunday 5th June 2016, 4.25pm (day 1,746)

White Lion yard, 5/6/16

Sunday afternoon, and a lazy one. Well, it was a very warm and sunny day and the last few days have been busy enough.

Joe does very little

Sunday 22nd May 2016, 1.30pm (day 1,732)

Joe chillin, 22/5/16

Not every day will be exciting, eventful or photogenic — but I’ve come to realise that does not matter. This shot epitomises today — a pleasant Sunday spent doing not very much, and I feel we are all the better for it.

Sunday market, Hebden Bridge

Sunday 7th February 2016, 11.35am (day 1,627)

Sunday market, 7/2/16

Limited horizons today, and don’t expect much else to change over the next couple of days either. It’s marking season. And the weather continues revolting — this is as good as the day got. There have been about half a dozen sunny days in three months, if that.

Steve and Tara in the Railway

Sunday 13th April 2014, 4.15pm (day 962)

Steve and Tara, 13/4/14

These two have appeared on the blog before, several times each — though not, I think, together; which is odd because together is how they always are. Of all the human/animal couplings I know Steve and Tara are the most symbiotic.
