Evening on Napoleon Street

Tuesday 30th November 2021, 6.30pm (day 3,750)

On Napoleon Street, 30/11/21

I seem to have made it to the last day in St Helena without a Napoleon reference — so here’s one, a vague one anyway. Not that this shot has anything to do with the man himself, for whom, having heard the stories of his time here, I now feel a little sorry. Anyway: there will be more to come of this place. But it’s time to head home.

The watcher

Sunday 16th May 2021, 1.15pm (day 3,552)

Watching cat, 16/5/21

Not a day that will live long in the annals of photographic history, at least, not for me. But this cat was cute (despite the reflections) and in fact, this is the first cat to appear on the blog since 3rd March 2020 — which is pretty poor form for this self-declared ‘cat person’. Lots of dogs, lots of birds, even a pig or three, but no cats for a while. Let’s rectify this.

Reflections of a limited existence

Tuesday 19th January 2021, 7.00pm (day 3,435)

Books in window, 20/1/21

The world is still out there, somewhere…. so we’ve been told. Across the valley, there’s a house that doesn’t seem to have removed its Christmas lights yet. Meanwhile, at home, the movie collection keeps a semblance of entertainment ticking over.

Red, white and blue

Friday 14th September 2018, 5.35pm (day 2,577)

Red, white, blue, 14/9/18

Second photo in a row taken through glass: this lady was sat outside the pub as we enjoyed the usual Friday afternoon thing. A quiet weekend coming up, poor weather forecast although there was some sunshine coming in for this shot. A bit of oddness caused by the reflections but I still like the image.

First one in

Monday 27th November 2017, 6.40am (day 2,286)

Early shop window, 27/11/17

Second Monday morning in a row where I have to haul myself up before dawn and onto the 06:59 train. Not my favoured way to start the week. I certainly felt like the first person up in town this morning; though I guess this suggests that either the proprietor of ‘Brocante’ beat me to it, or they just left the lights on all night.

Window, Hebden Bridge Mill

Monday 3rd April 2017, 8.45am (day 2,048)

Mill window, 3/4/17

Definitely one of those days where I was glad there was some half-decent light on my brief foray out of the house this morning, as once I got back at about 9.30 I then stayed in all day teaching online. This window is a feature of the large mill that sits in Hebden Bridge town centre and is known — without much originality — as Hebden Bridge Mill. The new year’s foliage is just coming to bud. I seem to be having a run of square pictures at the moment; that’s two in a row, and three in the last week.

Directive

Monday 11th April 2016, 3.55pm (day 1,691)

No hippies sign, 11/4/16

I assume this is all postmodern and ironic. Then again, perhaps it is post-postmodern and they actually mean it.

Joe at the hotel window

Thursday 25th July 2013, 10.00am (day 700)

Joe, hotel window, 25/7/13A good subject to mark this numerical milestone — day 700 of the blog, and in all those 700 pictures, Joe is the person who has appeared the most times. But I have no problem adding him again today; when I saw him looking out of our hotel room window in Brighton this morning, I had to take it.

Because it’s a round number, I’ll update the Best of the Rest page later and the Stats too, if I get around to it…

Figure at the window

Saturday 1st December 2012, 12.40pm (day 464)

Figure at window, 1/12/12

Is there a voyeuristic aspect to this shot? I like the light, the pattern of the branches contrasted with the brick, the facelessness of it.

Dentist’s waiting room

Tuesday 17th April 2012, 3.40pm (day 236)

Waiting room, 17/4/12

Spent most of the day working at home and otherwise around familiar haunts. Only the six-monthly visit to the dentist’s gave opportunity for much variety and even then I had done the ‘treatment’ picture already. So here’s an abstract.
