the top one is clearly a glove but the second two below ... well you'll just have to take my word for it

100829_450d_img_7639.jpg

100829_450d_img_7623.jpg

here's a bit of a story for you.  i've haven't really posted much life stuff on this blog as i've been doing that elsewhere.

100829_450d_img_7632.jpg

however, i thought you might find this interesting.

100829_850_img_1998.jpg

yesterday in between (and during) rain showers we walked on a new bit of motorway in central auckland

100829_450d_img_7593.jpg

it was open for 4 hours only as a celebration of all that is great about motorways and engineering and being a kiwi. 

100829_450d_img_7596.jpg

this giant blue crane was the magic behind constructing the new motorway bridge

100829_450d_img_7597.jpg

and next weekend it'll be shut to traffic so they can do the final switcheroo

100829_450d_img_7599.jpg

so for one day only you could walk along and enjoy the view and inginuity

100829_450d_img_7601.jpg

in the rain

100829_450d_img_7602.jpg

beside the view over the sides there were plenty of bollards to admire

100829_450d_img_7603.jpg

and you could look down at all the spare bits of bridge they had left over (that always used to happen with airfix kids didn't it)

100829_450d_img_7606.jpg

there's the motorway going up the hill in the distance just to prove it is all connected.

100829_450d_img_7621.jpg

and here's some detailed instructions about the big blue crane thing

100829_450d_img_7627.jpg

to be honest, it didn't look particularly solid from underneath.  but i did an electronics degree, so what do i know.

100829_450d_img_7636.jpg

there were hundreds of peoples taking their sunday afternoon stroll on the road

100829_450d_img_7637.jpg

and it really felt like a lovely community thing.  they even put some diggers out for kids to climb in and pretend to drive (there were no keys in them)

100829_850_img_1993.jpg

and i was delighted to see some gloves near this roller

100829_850_img_1994.jpg

there they are look.  i don't think they were workmen's ones.  unless workmen wear blue woollen gloves.

100829_850_img_1995.jpg

i loved it despite the rain.  it's great to celebrate big feats of engineering and this was done in a lovely community way.  we even got postcards to show we'd been there.

100829_850_img_2000.jpg

great stuff.

the have gloves here but they aren't as good as the ones in blighty

100511_850_img_0050.jpg

100430_850_img_9841.jpg

i know what you are thinking, there's not been too many gloves on the blog of late.  there are a few about, but it's mostly shoes and jandals on the streets.  london has its gloves.  auckland has it jandals

091014_850_img_6051.jpg

nope, i've absolutely no idea either.

100305_850_img_8529.jpg

100305_850_img_8539.jpg

i've spotted a few gloves in the last couple of days.  that's good news isn't it

100129_850_img_8005.jpg

it's a pile of funkypancake faves just outside my office

100107_850_img_7634.jpg

note the bare feet rather than the work shoes of london-based glove spotting

100109_450d_img_2983.jpg

bor edd hands.jpg

these are mannequin hands on the floor next to the mannequin who owns them.  fingerless gloves for the handless man.

091014_850_img_6056.jpg

and the great news is ... there are lost gloves in new zealand too !

090522_850_img_3982.jpg

and so the chilliness continues increasing chances significantly of finding lost gloves on railings

080302-090121_350d_img_3542.jpg

080302-090121_350d_img_3548.jpg

here's a fantastic glove photo from my nephew thomas.  he took the photo especially for us to see, so thanks thomas !

080302-090112_850_img_2680.jpg

here is a glove outside tesco and the location where the glove had been (which had soaked up the rain).  yes.  glove.  antiglove.

080817_350d_img_8953.jpg

it was great to find an abandoned glove on the beach.  we're a bit out of season at the moment so any glove finds are good.

thanks to tiddly tom tom our sat nav we ended up going down some country track. we soon turned round but spotted this glove at the point of no return.

i get a lot of emails asking how i manage to take such exquisite photos of gloves. so in the best spirit of photo sites such as strobist, here's a picture showing how i do it.

from the shadow you can see that i simply hold my camera and point it at the thing i'm trying to photo.

on new year's day we went for a family walk and spotted a glove. nothing unusual there.
070101_850_img_0226.jpg

but then my mother in law picked it up and put it on. she'd forgotten one of her own gloves you see.
070101_850_img_0227.jpg

and so we continued on our walk (here's thomas, sil binky and kezia)
070101_850_img_0236.jpg

it was a there-and-back walk and when we got back to the point where found the glove, my mother in law looked for a place to put the glove so the owner would find it.
070101_850_img_0238.jpg

my father in law suggested the sign post and was the only one who could reach it.
070101_850_img_0239.jpg

here he is looking very unsuspicious
070101_850_img_0240.jpg

so if this is your glove, you know where to find it. and thanks for the loan.

my colleague robin spotted this as we walked between two meetings. i'm really pleased with the angle and lines of this wooly glove in summer.

this isn't my usual found street glove, but it was worth a photo as it did stop us getting wet by holding up a giant orning. is that how you spell orning ?

http://www.funkypancake.com/blog/stuff3/2006/07/DSC00767-thumb.jpg

esther spotted this in the undergrowth. can you see it ?

it's dog gloves. a classic two-category photo.



2 gloves

and here:

i hadn't spotted many gloves for ages until yesterday when i saw loads.

here is one on the road approaching the Savoy Hotel (note the cars driving on the wrong side of the road as is their tradition outside the savoy). i nearly got run over taking this photo (click it to see the glove and the Savoy hotel properly)

here's a close up of the glove

.

and here are a load of gloves on the bank of the thames

and finally, here's one which might be a glove but might not be:

last week i got an email from Mange Tout saying he too had a glove photo website which you can view here. i notice he's found some other glove websites too !




CIMG0068.jpg

alone ?

or with a friend ?

we're definitely moving in to summer gloves. rubber gloves are increasingly popular with people doing things with chemicals, like painting, staining and things with bunsen burners.




DSC00782.jpg

gloves, combs, nail brushes and pegs all used to lure us in to this shop.

why do they bother with such things ? if they'd just had a picture of a glove i'd have gone in.


here is one of kezia's gardening gloves (every 3 year old should have some). it was on our living room floor being illuminated through the window.

update: Desktop Sized picture here

i bumped in to a friend on the tube last week i hadn't seen for about 3 years. he's called al, but i call him alvin.

and then i saw him again randomly in paddington station a few days later.

on one of the times i saw him i also saw this glove

we're getting towards the end of the glove season in the UK right now, so here's a few i've been holding back.

i saw hundreds and hundreds of gloves whilst i was doing the london marathon, but i decided early on there was no point trying to get photos as i couldn't keep up with them without stopping (and causing trouble for those behind me).

but if you ever want a new jumper, gloves, hat or even a bum bag, then it's worth following a marathon course. it's full of discarded cardies.

DSC09890.jpg

here is a typical glove
DSC09892.jpg

esther and kezia's grandfather reporting a glove sighting near our holiday cottage. so my brother in law and i took our children in search of it.

we found two. and a muddy old hat.

as part of my marathon training i've been really trying to take photos without stopping.

this is quite a challenge as it requires a quick reaction when i see an object worth photoing.

so, i was very pleased with this glove which came out sharp enough to make a nice desktop background.

nottingham is robin hood country. he robbed the rich to give to the poor. the same could be said for gloves.

perhaps.

my collection of glove sighting's aren't just lost gloves. here is a good example of some gloves which probably weren't lost, but are still worth photoing.

kezia spotted these when everyone else missed them. she's a true protege in the glove spotting department

here are a couple of glove in an absolutely classic place. they were next to a gate near a public footpath.

i love it when categories collide. how about this. it's a glove on a dog sign.

we approached it by walking up a slippery icey field and just as it came in to sight the clouds parted and it was illuminated by the sun. as soon as i'd finished taking the photos it went back to being dark and dismal again !

how can people believe there is no god ?



click on any of these to enjoy a desktop sized photo

i got an email yesterday from annie of www.lostglove.co.uk asking if she could link to my glove collection.

of course she can, and to thank her, you can go visit her collection too. whilst i go for the non-interventionist approach (ie capture them in their natural environment and leave them be), annie takes them home and cares for them (rather like i do when i find a passport photo).

As a result i don't think she's got many of the rather clinical medical ones i seem to spot round the back of hospitals !

www.lostglove.co.uk also links to other glove sites and this rather interesting article.

it's great weather for glove finding at the moment. here are a few i've found in the last few days:

here are a couple of gloves from my old university house mate jeremy.

i think these pictures are great as the colour of the glove matches the surroundings. gloves are so versatile.

jane and the girls went to nottingham earlier this week. as we learnt over christmas, nottingham is the centre for lost gloves and fancy dog signs (like this one).

it was therefore no surprise when they returned with these great dog signs:

is it right i get my children to point at gloves on the street ? they do seem to enjoy it.

take this find for example. esther spotted it and practically threw herself at it to be in the photo !

no gloves or children were harmed in the making of this photo (and esther didn't touch it!)

there were three gloves on my favourite glove-railings this morning.

compare to what i saw last time and you'll notice there's been a slight change. someone's taken the pair and replaced it with a faux-leather singular glove.

what we have here is an actual, modern, working glove exchange

DSC06862.jpg DSC06863.jpg DSC06864.jpg

DSC06820.jpg

gloves are particular tricky to take whilst walking at speed. my first attempt (on the left) was pittiful, but as the walk progressed my accuracy improved.

DSC06730.jpg DSC06745.jpg

i took this photo of lots of red gloves through some railings and a security chap came up to me and said "what are you doing" ?

"taking pictures of these gloves" i said

"well, be careful" he said. "they are toxic"

as i began to walk away he said "that's why we thrown them in there".

so now we know. just don't stand too close to your screen, ok.

DSC06472.jpg

i walked down a small section of street this morning which had a number of gloves stuck on the railings, rather like last week's coke drinks.

DSC06619.jpg DSC06621.jpg

and here's the one from last week which is still there. but it's now got a spider's web attached (or maybe it's spiderman's glove and the web has shot out from the glove) ?

there's different ways of taking photos of gloves. generally i go for the reportage approach and simply take them as they lie.

occasionally i like to indulge myself in a little creative photography to liven what can, occasionally, be a slightly mundane photographic subject.

so, here is a negative image of a glove on some railings:

and here is the same glove taken with a long exposure with the street panning out behind it:

it's not always easy to get photos of gloves. these two were in the middle of quite a busy road junction outside Paddington Station.

i had to pre-focus my camera and dodge traffic to get the second of these photos !

unless you know what you are doing, i urge you not to follow my example.

on the left are some humanoid state-side bollards sent from cheryl. she questioned whether these chaps were bollards since they were doing the same job.

my motto is "if it quacks like a duck, it probably is a duck" (unless it's a cunning cat trying to catch duck by impersonating them). so, yes. i think it's a bollard

on the right is a glove from nottingham sent by brother-in-law kev who has just moved up that way and likes sending me pictures of gloves

glove in luscious green grass.

luscious is a word which used to be used a lot by teenage girls (when i was a teenage boy). as in "that's so lush".

maybe they still do.

i also saw this rubber glove and its suspicious looking bag (which was empty)

DSC04458.jpg DSC04465.jpg

UPDATE: Having not seen the word Lush for nearly 20 years, i saw it an hour after posting this picture. see hear (look sea)

look what i found in our local supermarket - it's a glove on a slippery-sign bollard

i thought i'd seen a nice purple glove in a plant pot this morning but it turned out to be these plants (with a spoon nestling in the background).

i was quite glad they were just plants as i was concerned that someone had stolen my new business plan, which is to create a line of knitted goods which have more than the usual set of parts.

i'm thinking of 6 (or more) fingered gloves. you'd still be able to wear them, you'd just have an extra finger hole available.

or what about a jumper with three arms ? Or trousers with three legs ?

is anyone willing to prototype any of the above for me ? i think we could be on to something with the 6 (or more) fingered gloves so perhaps we should start there.

i think this art-concept (for that is what it is my friends) needs a name. something along the lines of 'extra-digits' or 'more-of-the-same' but i'm sure you can help me here.

be great to get something in the shops before Christmas.

we're in for a cold winter in the UK apparently. it's global warming (hey?). bad news for the environment, but great news for glove spotting.

it's not even really cold yet and here's a red glove in a black glove. this means someone has already started wearing twin-gloves.

it's a sign about gloves.

we spotted this glove on the way back from church but because we had visitors i couldn't walk down the street to photo it for you.

luckily zach was keen to track the glove down and provided the ideal excuse to go and photo it. so here is the glove. and here is zach.

DSC02581.jpg DSC02582.jpg

these gloves might have been shoes. difficult to tell.

they obviously belonged to a teeny weeny baby. when you are that age your hands and shoes are interchangable anyway.

they can hide, but i'll always find them.

it's probably some chauffeur's driving glove

i love email. and blogs. and life really.

here are some gloves from america. Those travelling from the south of england should turn left on the way up to scotland and keep going. don't be sidetracked by the funny-speaking people on the way - you will meet lots of funny-speaking people when you get there.

when you do get there, go to a place called Phoenix Arizona, and ask for Jason of what's THAT about

he found these gloves whilst out cycling. you can see his tyre on the left

glove-1.jpg glove-2.jpg

he writes "I've been putting together a collection of 'shoes' in the road images..it always amazes me that there will be one lonely abandoned shoe in the middle of the road and I wonder how it got there.. I wrote a haiku about it. it's on my site."

go find.

here are a couple of beautiful glove pictures. we were so lucky find them set amongst such beautiful scenary. jane took the shot on the left and the challenge was on for me to find a glove to compete with this shot.

i did find a glove (two actually) but her shot was better. everyone loves a good lost glove photo duel.

three generations of glove finders out on a walk were bound to find some gloves.

my mum spotted this one first:

and then i found this in a little stream:

here is a photo from brother kev (jane's sister's husband as seen on the blog at christmas with a low hat - we've very informal around here and ignore the traditional 'in-law' thing).

it's a very good picture and would make a terrific background for any desktop.

kev says:

Iíve started carrying my camera around and hey presto, in only three days my first glove.

Totally genuine, found on a tree stump beside a path just behind Elm Park in Thame, Oxfordshire, at about 12.30pm on Thursday 12 Feb 04

And here it is all for you

here is another fluffy glove. the one on the right looked like it was a glove from a distance so i got my camera out as i approached it.

unfortunately it was not a glove. it was in fact a "doggie-do" which had been deposited in a glove resembling way.

i deliberately didn't use flash. (perhaps i should have used 'flush')

a glove on my train at 12.15 this morning.

DSC09788.jpg

this woolen glove was in the middle of the road and was extremely flat (like a cartoon character run over by a steam roller).

i was pleased to see it was giving me the 'thumbs up' despite the obvious traumas it had been through.

i've been to some work do tonight. i've been out every night this week so far and will be tomorrow and have a music practice on friday night. this makes me very popular at home.

i found this glove on the floor in the pub next to The Barbican Centre in London. i went in there as i arrived at my meeting 30 mins early.

here is a glove jane found in windsor park. it was on a fence post in front of the General Stores.

it may even have belonged to one of her majesty's grandchildren. but probably not.

ebony and ivory. live together in perfect harmony.

two gloves, one nature reserve. one black, one white. one rubber, one leather. both lost in a strange world.

(this should prove very popular with those who like to look at damp gloves - in particular those people who end up at this site by doing a search for 'glove wet look problem' in google.)

here is a glove jane and i found on the way back from the Villa nightclub. i enjoyed the club immensley, but jane wasn't so sure. part of the problem was that her top became see-through under the ultraviolet lights and all you could see was her bright white bra. this probably wouldn't have been such an issue, only everyone else there was wearing all black.

the music there was excellent. lots of dark grungey noise - as the evening went on things got poppier. highly recommended.

we left about midnightish so we could get full value out of our hotel ! here was glove we found on the way back:

Dsc08017.jpg

update: i forgot to mention that some random chap tried to sell us some annadin and a swig of coca-cola whilst we were walking to the nightclub ! he was obviously trying to profit on the back of an urban myth.

asher spotted another glove. he stalked it for a while before rushing over and taking its photo. he sent me this photo on wednesday but i forgot to display it and he got all upset (poor chap).

Image048.jpg

he's under a lot of stress and this is the last thing he needs. i can only apologise and hope that the display of his photo makes up for the sadness i have caused him

the skankiest yet !

it's a glove hat trick

here is a glove i saw on the way home last night. the hour changed on sunday so it's dark going home at 5pm, hence my use of flash. However, the flash does bring out that medical yellowy-brown colour you often see on medical things, which is nice.

DSC07863.jpg

found by Ash at the Angel tube station, about 4.30pm on Saturday.

esther found a glove. here it is:

the museum also had a comprehensive glove collection showing gloves are not just a modern day stockholm phenominum:

found this on the way to the conference

DSC07734.jpg

not sure if this is a repeat, but i liked the angled cobbles which we haven't seen before

DSC07642.jpg

stockholm obviously realises its wealth of gloves and incorporates it in to its art:

here is someone hiding under a lampshade in the same art gallery:

lots of gloves spotted this morning in different places. possibly the first two are a pair:

glove finger tip (for precision work?):

here is a fantastic thing. you know i love gloves right ?

well imagine my delight when i found these hanging on a special 'glove line' at Pam's house ! (the fingers in the glove on the right were full of water making them more life like which was a good feature).

this love of gloves must run in the family.

DSC07213.jpg

this was a really marvellous glove find. a bright purple one in a residential street

DSC07202.jpg

red gloves in oxford street london. interesting that one of them is in a shopping trolley

DSC07184.jpgDSC07185.jpg

this glove looked like it's made from hemp, but was probably just woolen

DSC06757.jpg

after the glove drought I end up finding three in one day. they've all been good.
the speckled blue one, the tied one and now the red one.

this one is nicely presented on some black railings.

DSC06751.jpg

here is a very screwed up glove. looks like one of the fingers had been knotted
DSC06748.jpg

i haven't seen a glove for a while so it was with great relief that I found this today. it has a nice blue speckled effect which is especially appealing

DSC06745.jpg

i spotted this glove in someone's front garden on the way home last night. unfortunately the owners of the house were unloading their car next to where the glove was lying.

so i said "can i take a picture of this glove for my website please". they didn't really just laughed politely but didn't say anything, so i took the photo anyway.

people are so weird about talking to strangers.

my first (known) international glove

a couple of my colleagues went to canada and found a glove mountain (as you do). here it is in all it's fingerly glory. doesn't it look gloverly ?

on the way home this evening I walked past the waste disposal part of the Middlesex Hospital. For the discarded gloves spotter, this is a rich seam.

this first photo shows about 6 pairs of gloves spread over the floor (esp the top left of this photo)
DSC05510.jpg

this glove was also there, slightly out of the shot above

on Oxford Street no less ...

i find my best gloves near hospitals or medical places. Harley Street is a good place. Here is a quality glove I saw this morning. See how it retains its shape.
DSC05053.jpg
The piece of paper was blank. Which said it all (ie nothing).

first glove of the week.

found by Middlesex Hospital (a little yellowed)
DSC04359.jpg

i saw this glove. it was moving down the road on finger tips.
could have been the wind. or something more sinister ...
DSC04299.jpg

just saw a bloke sitting on the floor wearing walking boots on his hands (as well as his feet). Maybe it's a new fashion thing. Personally I have no opinion on the whole 'boots as gloves' concept. I would have taken a photo. But it seemed a bit rude. Whitfield Street isn't a cat-walk you know.
