Notes on someone else’s work

Friday 10th January 2020, 1.10pm (day 3,060)

Thesis annotations, 10/1/20

Friday was one of those highly exciting days spent entirely working at home (or, I admit, in the pub after), and with little light outside. I have this thesis to examine in a couple of weeks so finished reading it today — it having been lugged aroud the Lakes on Wednesday too. What’s my opinion on it? Well, that’s not for this forum. But at least the task will get me to Belfast in a fortnight, and provide more diverse material for this blog.

Awayday moment

Monday 3rd June 2019, 11.15am (day 2,839)

T&L awayday, 3/6/19

Ah, the departmental awayday, where we all turn up and profess to be interested in whatever it is we are awaydaying about. But the room had a certain grandeur to it (probably uncaptured in this shot of clutter). Suitable entertainment for my weekly appearance in Manchester?

Thesis

Thursday 4th January 2018, 2.15pm (day 2,324)

Thesis, 4/1/18

With the whole of 2018 so far having been afflicted with grim, grey weather, there has been little motivation to go out in it; in fact in the last three days I’ve only left the house once, for about two hours last night. There’s work to be done, I might as well get on with it. It doesn’t make for gripping photography, I realise that, but I’ll do my best.

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.

In the BBC

Thursday 15th June 2017, 4.00pm (day 2,121)

BBC work pods, 15/6/17

Visited the BBC site today at Salford Quays for a meeting — which was less glamorous than it may sound. Quay House is graced by a whole six-floor-high wall of these little work pods, which are kind of cute.

Liz and Doug

Friday 18th March 2016, 12.40pm (day 1,667)

Liz and Doug, 18/3/16

I don’t often do shots of working life, usually because it’s neither very interesting, nor very appropriate to stick cameras in the face of people I’m working with. But today should be a work shot,  to mark the end of a bloody busy week. And I get away with it today and I like it because though both these people, Liz and Doug, have played a relatively significant role in my life over the last whatever years they have never met before today. Doug’s second appearance on the blog (after this one), Liz’s first.

Enjoying a drink after work

Wednesday 3rd June 2015, 5.35pm (day 1,378)

Drink after work, 3/6/15

At least I had finished my work for the day by this point. Sometimes you just have to like the photo you got, while simultaneously wanting to apologise to the innocent model. There is still wine in the world, at least.
