I Bloom

From yawn producing
Tracey was going through some old photos on one of our hard-drives - we have several terabytes of photos because a kid can't pass wind in this house without Tracey wanting to capture the moment for posterity.

"What a dreadful photo!" I exclaimed when a particularly nasty one of me crossed the screen. I was yawning on account of it being late and Tracey was keeping me out of bed to help her set up a photo shoot. "Get rid of that."

"I'll fix it for you," said Miss8.

Tracey has been fiddling with photos and making them better for years, with the help of Photoshop. Colours are enhanced and wrinkles removed - guess which one makes her more popular with her clients? More recently Tracey has been showing Miss8 how to use Photoscape, which my daughter loves. exciting edited version
with barely discernible touch ups.
"Okay then," I said to Miss8. If she could do something with this photo, I figured, we might have ourselves a budding genius photo editor on our hands. Although I didn't hold much hope.

A few minutes later she was done.

"What do you think, Daddy?" she asked me.

She's a natural!!

I think there's career potential in this, I really do. I've gone from tired and weary to looking as fresh as a purple daisy. 

"I look fabulous," I told her. Now to get her working on pruning my waste.

About Me

My photo

Bruce Devereaux is one of the nicest people he knows. When not at work he enjoys reading, writing, hiding from his children and not changing nappies.


His career, and if we used the term any more loosely an e might fall out, has included a gardener, a personal lender, a console operator, a stop/go man (not as big a bludge as you might think but great if you’re into sunburn, abuse and varicose veins), a cleaner of banks and pubs and, for a very brief period, a door to door salesman (until the last door he knocked on was answered by a very scary woman with tremendously hairy legs).


Bruce Devereaux currently works as a forty-five-year-old award winning customer service officer (glass statuette available upon request) for the Bank of Queensland and as a very casual employee for Corrective Services. He likes to believe he excels at both but then he has always been prone to exaggeration.


His favourite colour is green, with a picture of Dame Nellie Melba on one side and General Sir John Monash on the other. His favourite flower is self-raising.

 If you see him around town, call his wife immediately - he's probably snuck out and left her alone with all the kids.
