4/1/2018 Stands up by rutty is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA The Christmas break is over and we are back up and running at band. No doubt many of our lips will be a little soft, but we'll have two hours tonight to blow the cobwebs away and start preparing ourselves for the year ahead. It's [...]
356/365 Sunset by rutty is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA The sun is being blinding at either end of the day again. It does seem stronger at sunrise and sunset during Winter Solstice. There’s probably a scientific explanation for that. There’s a lovely view down the canal from this bridge - utterly obliterated by our nearest [...]
311/365 Platform 1 by rutty is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA Waiting for our train to Cambridge on a chilly Nottingham train platform. My colleague Chris and I are heading down to the University of Cambridge for a short private conference with our testing opposites. The UoC test team are far more advanced in test automation [...]
308/365 No photo by rutty is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA Somebody is a bit fed up of somebody constantly trying to take photos of them. Sorry Bonus extra photo of Ruby during the Fireworks display at Beeston Marina. She loved her little glow wand thingy. by rutty is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA
307/365 Office by rutty is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA Another workplace in the gloom. This building is part of the Highfields Science and Technology Park and is quite the statement construction. So colourful and interesting. Here are another couple of images taken at the same time: by rutty is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA by rutty [...]
306/365 Workshop by rutty is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA The clocks going back at the weekend mean that my commute home is starting to coincide with the oncoming gloom. It's also starting to get a bit chillier, so there's a definite autumnal feel about it. The canal is barely lit along the path, so it [...]
299/365 Bend by rutty is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA Yet another photo of the canal. I have edited this one solely within iOS Photos rather than using my usual photo editing app Snapseed. It's come out better than I thought it would.

292/365 Grey by rutty is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA The weather at Disneyland Paris has been uniformly wonderful. Hurricane Ophelia very kindly sucked up loads of hot air from the south and left it over France for us, so we had constant sunshine and lovely warm temperatures. We are now back in the UK and [...]
253/365 Wollaton Hall by rutty is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA Any day is a good day to visit Wollaton Hall. It's not just about Batman, especially when there's a special Chinese dinosaur exhibition on show. The view out of the windows is exceptional. I could stare out of here for ages.
224/365 Stars of Notts by rutty is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA This building near the Old Angel in Nottingham has been decorated with some famous Notts folk. Some of the links are a bit tenuous (Batman - Wayne Manor is filmed in nearby Wollaton for instance), but I do love this.
"197/365 160" by rutty is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA There's all sorts of lovely things to see at Nottingham Arboretum, including - as you'd expect - plenty of trees. There are also a good few little sculptures like this one dotted around too. I was here today to guest with a brass band for a [...]
