I’m not the only one with a foot problem. Elsa is suffering along with me, and hers is a bit more severe – a full detachment.

On the other hand, I suspect that she has an easier time icing it.

When I try to come up with ideas for these photos, I typically think to myself: ‘What have I been doing lately?’

The answer, unfortunately, is always the same: Running

Yesterday I ran 15 miles for the first time since running in Shelter’s Urban Rush back in October – and I even managed it in about the same time, despite that it was not actually a race.

I think that means I’m faster now. Which probably means that you should be supporting my marathon run for Shelter. In all seriousness, it’s been cold here in the UK this winter, and this is money that helps put and keep people in homes, where they can be warm and safe. It’s important stuff. It also means you get to dress me up while I sweat, which I hope sounds like fun.

In any case, here’s Big Bear, aka Beary, aka Rosie, dressed in my Urban Rush shirt:

None of us can be perfect. I, for example, spent time arguing with somebody who was wrong on the internet. We can all be weak.

Anyways. Day 8. An angry old bear on Twitter.

I must not have enough going on, because I’ve decided to start a 365 project.

Every day of 2017, I will:

  • Think of a scene to represent that day
  • Compose that scene using toys. Presumably, but not necessarily, Maggie’s toys
  • Take a picture
  • Post-process
  • Stick it on the internet

These pictures will be available here, Tumblr, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. So all over.


Day 1 of 365

January 1, 2017

Anna demonstrates a typical New Year’s Day. Hungover, hair a mess, wearing her sister’s best dress. Out of the chosen shot, but part of the scene: a pot of tea, and no shoes (having disappeared at some point the night before).

We understand you Anna. We understand you.
