My wife always says that she needs an extra pair of hands.
Well I found her some in Leeds.
Jackdaw regulars may recall that the last time I was there it was legs that caught my eye.
Pretty soon I’ll have my self a new woman. My own Frankenstein’s monster.
Have a great weekend everyone. See you on the flip side.

I love this photograph of Deansgate, Manchester, taken during a heavy rainstorm this August, 2019.
Taken from Deansgate Station, it has been likened to a Lowry painting.
It was taken by Simon Buckley, an artist whose photographs I discovered in his blog Not Quite Light, featuring photographs of the older, northern parts of the city that I love when, well, it was not quite light.
His blog led me to his website, where you can view and purchase copies of his prints:

Night has finally fallen on this longest day. For once, the summer solstice actually looked like a summer’s day. I think the heat and energy was affecting everyone.
I saw a woman shouting like a matador to passing cars.
“Speed down! Speed down! You’re speeding up!” Then, almost as an aside to herself: “I’m old school. Hard school.”
Can you actually ‘speed down’? Can an old school be a hard school? These are the things keeping me awake tonight.
Like I said, it’s affecting everyone.
