On this trip, I spent about a week and a half in Manchester, traveling to Leicestershire on the weekend, then to Bristol afterwards. From there, I flew to Cyprus for the EG Symposium on Rendering, then back to London for a day. The EGSR page is linked here.
My first stop was Manchester, where I spent about a week on a new research project with the university there.
Nick and Mashhuda
Mashhuda is the main person I'm working with, and she and her husband Nick put me up (put up with me) in their home during my stay.
Doing a little shopping for a home-cooked Indian meal.
Mashhuda's house backs up onto a lovely wood, and we took the scenic route to work this morning.

Here is the computer science building where we were actually working, or at least pretending to.
On the weekend, we drove to Leicester, where Mashhuda and Nick visited her parents while I visited my friend John and his family.
John lives in the little village of Frisby on the Wreake. The Wreake is a kind of creek the other side of the tracks from his house.
Here is a panorama I took of Frisby Lake.
The next morning, John took me for a nice walk to the neighboring villages of Leicestershire along the Wreake.
There were a fair few gates such as this separating the pastures.
Each village had its own little church, which made it easy to locate from a distance.
Here is the view of the Hoby church on the path to Rotherby.

And here it is.
Back in Manchester, we spent a good part of the day photographing various buildings for our inverse lighting project.
Mashhuda is actually a bit frustrated in this photo, trying to get her USB port to recognize my memory stick.
We had a nice dinner the last night with some of Mashhuda's friends.
