I’m very much NOT a visually creative person, but today have found myself doodling/sketching for a little project! The iPad is very forgiving and seems to add a flourish!
I really really can’t tell you how very proud I am that my son made this for me. ❤️❤️❤️😍😍😍😍It says: “82 111 115 115 (Ross)”. He wrote Unicode!
Quite pleased with my first Lego stop-frame animation!
Back from a brilliant family holiday week. Such a happy time with my favourite people.
I’ve been a bit of a Brexit/politics bore tonight. Feeling the need for some light-hearted relief. Here’s a photo of a pre-schooler in dinosaur pyjamas brandishing a camera made of stickle-bricks. I challenge you not to smile.
I’ve always had a thing for trees. I know they can be explained in so many ways, but in others they are mysterious. They seem to have souls. They get old and wise. And each and every trunk, branch and leaf is very much the same, and yet, totally unique. A symbol of both the infinite complexity of nature, and the rigid order within which that complexity it constrained. A tension I still fail to resolve.
We found this horse-chestnut branch. It’s symmetry is so almost-perfect as to be perplexing. I LOVE it.
I know the water cycle. I really do. But I still can’t quite understand how so much water gets up to the sky. Water is HEAVY. Cumulonimbus clouds have been said to “weigh” up to one million tonnes. And you see the result when it rains. LOTS of water falls from the sky. LOTS. And it has to get up there somehow. And I know that it evaporates from the oceans and lakes but…that’s a LOT of energy. Clouds. Amazing.
