Weight and Stuff Report – 27 June 2013

Down a teeny bit today, good stuff. I planned to have another good walk at lunchtime. It was bit dull and grey when I left the office, but not enough to put me off, so I started my wander, taking a few photos of odd architectural details as I went:

There’s loads of this stuff to enjoy – you just have to remember to look up from time to time. Which is something I clearly need to do more often, as I don’t recall previously noticing the detail in this crest over a door on Collingwood Street:

This is slightly worrying, as I worked in the building in question for about eleven years… :dizzy:

Moving along, I had a closer look at Cross House

And just as I reached the point where I needed to decide on my route for the rest of my walk, it started to rain. Not proper heavy rain, but wet enough to be annoying, so I put my camera back in the bag and took an indirect route back to the office, stopping off at Central Arcade to take a few wide photos:

Here’s the walk, which thanks to the weather was a bit shorter than yesterday’s. As usual, click the map to see the zoomy interactive version and the distance details.

It’s another day of meetings tomorrow, so no walking or photography.
