  • Never Grow Up

    1/365/2018 Star

    Parenting is difficult, isn’t it? You become responsible for an actual juvenile human and have the privilege of guiding them towards adulthood. This is a protracted experience for all involved, and while there are some painful points along the way I have experienced more joy in these last ten years than I ever hoped for. […]

  • Adding shade with Apollo

    13/1/2018 #didgotospecsavers

    I have recently installed a new iOS image editing app called Apollo: Immersive Illumination. It enables you to add in extra lighting onto your photos using the depth information that Apple creates in Portrait mode images. It’s a remarkably simple concept but is a little fiddly to get right.

    21/1/2018 New goggles by rutty is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA Ruby’s eyes have changed very slightly so new glasses are needed for reading and close work. She’s chosen two pairs from the ‘boys’ selection, because she is not encumbered by the stupidity of gender-specific spectacles. I wouldn’t have let her have the Manchester United glasses […]

    1/365/2018 Star by rutty is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA It’s 2018 already! It doesn’t seem 365 days since I started the last year’s worth of photos, so it’s almost a surprise that the year has rolled around once more. My last 365 project was all square and all black and white all the time. I […]

    363/365 Just Dance by rutty is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA One of Ruby’s little Christmas Eve presents was this second-hand Wii game – Just Dance. She’s very much into dancing around like a loon to music, so she absolutely loves it. It’s an old game so her favourite songs are missing, but there are some […]

We’ve had more food than is generally sensible, had a quiz, enjoyed many beers (or whatever beverage was preferred) and stayed up late. Then, this morning, we walked all […]

Obviously, the answer is to have a go at some sciencing! Ruby received some thoughtful gifts from friends and family, and […]
