Whitworth building corridor

Friday 16th February 2018, 12.15pm (day 2,367)

Whitworth corridor, 16/2/18In some shots it’s a matter of trying to stand as exactly in the centre of the pattern as is possible. I think I nearly made it but the window at the end betrays a slight bias to the left. But then of course if I was that worried about symmetry I would have ditched the shot when my colleague walked through the door.

Kilburn Building (and bus stops)

Wednesday 14th February 2018, 11.45am (day 2,365)

Kilburn building, 14/12/18

So, I see it’s a year ago today that I posted my 2,000th picture. In a couple of weeks it’ll be six-and-a-half years since I started this blog. But there are still little takes on the Uni of Manchester campus I haven’t tried yet. Even if they aren’t quite straight.

The M.E.C.D. rises

Tuesday 9th January 2018, 6.35pm (day 2,329)

MECD, 9/1/18

The MECD is the Manchester Engineering Campus Development and will save all our souls, or jobs, or something. What has broken ground so far are just a couple of corner pillars of the whole. Today’s photo is also a sign I pulled a late one at work this evening.

Back on campus

Monday 8th January 2018, 11.10am (day 2,328)

January campus, 8/1/18Since 30th December, a photo that featured a cast of thousands, not a single person has featured on here; but then again there haven’t really been many chances to depict them. Nor was the Manchester campus this morning very busy, it does not crank up again until next week student-wise. This photo is a fine example of how all the litter and recycling bins around the place are good for the environment, but not photography. I suppose here it’s just about tolerable.

Chrissi’s workshop

Thursday 7th December 2017, 1.25pm (day 2,296)

Chrissi's workshop, 7/12/17

Chrissi came to teach us all about using board games in teaching — not that that is obvious from this shot, but what the hell, I still like it. It was an engaging session and I think this is captured here. And yes, the eagle-eyed may have spotted our Clare engaging in the back there.

The former café

Wednesday 6th December 2017, 10.05am (day 2,295)

Ex-cafe, 6/12/17In the summer the university catering service decided they could no longer be troubled to run a café in my building at work — the seats still get used, but there’s no warmth to the place any more. Another shot with emptiness as its theme, like yesterday’s…. maybe this is some big existential crisis brewing.

Sam Alex Building at sunset

Friday 1st December 2017, 4.05pm (day 2,290)

Sam Alex, sunset, 1/12/17

The Sam(uel) Alex(ander) Building is the one next to mine at work. Sun setting when leaving work already — but there’s still three weeks for the nights to get longer yet.

In University Place

Tuesday 28th November 2017, 9.30am (day 2,287)

University Place, 28/11/17

She’s about to stand up, so this was my one chance to get this picture — hence, it’s fiercely cropped and could be a lot sharper. But…. I still kinda like it. You can’t really go wrong with rimlight like that.

Engineering campus development

Thursday 23rd November 2017, 2.40pm (day 2,282)

Engineering campus, 23/11/17

OK, I know, I know, Manchester, building site…. But, at least, a well-lit one. With piles of red things that look like some big kid’s construction set. In the end, that’s what this is anyway.

My colleagues

Wednesday 22nd November 2017, 2.05pm (day 2,281)

Susan, Gary, Mike, 22/11/17I’ve worked with all four of these people (Susan, Gary, Mike — and, on screen, Marilena) for quite a while. Which is why we probably all look so excited at the prospect of a two-hour meeting with each other…. Only kidding.
