Autumn Mornings

I woke up really early this morning and couldn’t get back to sleep. The field across the road from my house seems to attract the morning mist. It’s usually empty except for the odd dog walker. It was a beautiful autumn sunrise and i’ve been pretty inspired by some of the free photo’s I found on Unsplash so I thought I’d go and take a few of my own.

Hacking Casper

Casper is a WordPress theme by Lacy Morrow. When looking around for a new WordPress theme, I came across Ghost. Ghost is an online publishing platform that takes the complexities out of writing and publishing online. There are some really gorgeous themes available.

I googled around a bit and found Casper, it’s an open source theme that imitates the default theme you get with ghost. It ticked most of the boxes for me as I wanted to take my website back to basics.

rogr.net 4.0

This website seems to move with my life serving as a log of different phases. I went freelance last year and was offered my old job back for quite a bit more money, so I sold out. As my life and job changed back, so has the blog.

Cheap, Easy Wedding Photo Booth

Some friends of mine recently got married. They wanted to hire a photo booth, however it was quite costly, so they asked me if I could make something. I did a bit of googling and realised that the photos actually looked better if you make your own as you can customize the background and make it more fun. You can also fit more people in for group shots. So we went for more of a photo area rather than a photo booth.
