The reason why I take so many pictures from my window is that I’m lucky to have such a good view. No buildings in the way and when the weather’s clear, I can even see the Yorkshire hills in the distance.
I haven’t seen much difference yet myself, have you? But it’s still early, after all, as Neil DeGrasse Tyson never fails to tweet every New Year’s Day, the first day of January has no astronomical significance whatsoever.
I know that I haven’t been updating this blog much lately and to be very honest, I don’t really know what to do with it. I paid for the domain for another year but that’s about it.
I don’t even have a pla-.

Okay, maybe I have more than a “pla”. I just like that quote 🙂 Hear me out:
I’ve been thinking about doing a series. In some of my past posts, I have mentioned I’m somewhat of a fan of dystopian fiction. In the last year I took some pictures that–in my imagination at least–could represent a setting of such fiction. I would like to get this out there, once I figure out a way to do it. So, yeah, watch this space.
A year ago I mentioned in this post that I got into a habit of taking a photo of a sunrise on the first working day of the year. I didn’t do it this year, a combination of forgetting to take my camera in the morning (this wasn’t an issue with compact, which I could carry in my everyday bag) and not good conditions for photography. Here are photos taken on the evening of 2nd January instead:
I love how clear the skies are in cold weather.
I just imagine myself aboard that plane off to somewhere warm–Copacabana beach in Rio, perhaps.
So it’s 2017 at last and I got myself my own domain. I have also been amusing myself by working on an ultimate all-genre big fat playlist of the 90s. And I’m not joking about the all-genre part. This is where Nirvana meets Barbie Girl and metal shakes hands with eurodance. I will post a link once it’s ready.
