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

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.

Walking home

Thursday 16th November 2017, 5.10pm (day 2,275)

Near Lewis building, 16/11/17

It gets darker and darker in the evenings so going home at this time feels later and later — even if it is the time most of us drones go home from work, of course.

Dying off

Thursday 9th November 2017, 3.30pm (day 2,268)

Dying off, 9/11/17

Today’s picture might have been of the Christmas markets being built in Manchester — but November’s not yet ten days old, for pity’s sake. A remnant of summer is preferable, even if it is mostly deceased. What it was doing out on this table in the afternoon, only the Contact Theatre Café knows.

IT helpdesk

Tuesday 7th November 2017, 1.55pm (day 2,266)

IT helpdesk, 7/11/17

How many IT helpdesks round the world look like this, I wonder? Still, they did help. On an iatrogenic problem, though.

Proteins priced individually

Wednesday 18th October 2017, 10.20am (day 2,246)

Café Muse, 18/10/17

“Hi. I’d like the chicken caesar salad, a potato salad, and a plate of glutamine synthetase, please.”

“Certainly madam. That’ll be £3.50 for the two salads, and we have a special on glutamine synthetase today at just £2.50 for a plate. Unless you’d prefer an orotidylate decarboxylase wrap, at just £1.95?”
