Autumn comes to campus

Tuesday 15th October 2019, 3.00pm (day 2,973)

Campus, autumn colour, 15/10/19

Six days away from campus and in that time, everything seems to have turned gold. Is that a jacket in the branches at the top? Or the ubiquitous and planet-killing plastic bag? Guess we can find out for sure when the rest of the leaves are gone.

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.

Weeping willow, by the old bridge

Sunday 28th April 2019, 11.00am (day 2,803)

Willow and bridge, 28/4/19

Another day for spring foliage to fill up the bandwidth. 2,803 days in and there are still some corners of the home town worth depicting. The bridge has been here since 1510, or thereabouts, and seems good for a while yet. Whether the same is true of the photographer, who knows…?

Arts West Building, University of Melbourne

Monday 8th April 2019, 11.20am (day 2,783)

Arts West building, 8/4/19

Another university campus makes it onto the blog. The week’s work that my colleague Lee and I have to do here is the reason I got the funding to come to Australia in the first place, so I’d better pay attention to my duties. It’s a pleasant — if somewhat cramped — campus; this is one of the newer buildings on it and is quite impressive inside and out. I was told that the shapes on the outer frame make patterns when seen on Google Maps but I’ve checked and nothing seems apparent to me: not as much as they remind me of the pattern on the cover of Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures, anyway.

Autumn ablaze

Sunday 28th October 2018, 2.20pm (day 2,621)

Autumn ablaze, 28/10/18

The clocks went back last night, and winter draws closer. But no one has told this tree yet and it’s determined to go out in a blaze of glory.

Tree collage

Saturday 30th June 2018, 11.40am (day 2,501)

Tree collage, 30/6/18

So ends June, probably the warmest, sunniest month to yet feature on this blog, at least in the UK. The Hebden Bridge Arts Festival is underway, which doubtless explains this collage visible on Market Street — it’s the kind of thing that happens. Better than plastic bags hanging from the foliage, anyway.

Nutclough Mill (and dead tree)

Sunday 7th January 2018, 11.10am (day 2,327)

Nutclough and dead tree, 7/1/18

I’m still not getting a great distance away from home… at least not this morning.

December scene, Hebden Bridge

Monday 18th December 2017, 10.50am (day 2,307)

HB december, 18/12/17

Winter, as such, I don’t mind. I can take the cold and it tends to look nice (as here). It’s the darkness that pisses me off, and we haven’t even reached the Solstice yet. On winter days when I’m around home I can just about get it in me to go out when the sun finally struggles up, but otherwise, if it can’t be bothered, usually neither can I.

A day indoors (thankfully)

Wednesday 13th December 2017, 12.25pm (day 2,302)

Mid-December, 13/12/17

That’s the Christmas tree (such as it is) in situ, but as yet undecorated. Outside it’s the kind of weather that makes one very glad this was scheduled as a day indoors. Even then I pulled a ten-hour day. It’s mid-December, for sure. May it pass quickly.

Waves of walls

Saturday 4th November 2017, 10.15am (day 2,263)

Waves of walls, 4/11/17

And back to the Lake District I go. But why on earth not — it’s a beautiful place, particularly on a lovely autumn morning like this one.
