This is my personal blog, not a venue for saleable images. In fact, because it's here that I share things that are important to me with the members of the moblog community, photo quality's not my priority. Events, occasions, achievements, thoughts, trips and experiments - you'll find them all here. Contact me for the development version of my photo portfolio, for a selection of saleable images or visit my dance photography blog or my website for cuttings. And remember that all photos remain my copyright unless I've specifically said otherwise.

"Every time I see an adult on a bicycle I no longer despair for the future of the human race"
........ H G Wells

"All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better"
........ Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Luck favours the prepared mind"
........ Louis Pasteur

"Never to get lost is not to live, not to know how to get lost brings you to destruction, and somewhere in the terra incognita in between lies a life of discovery."
........ Rebecca Solnit

"Give, give, give -- what is the point of having experience, knowledge or talent if I don't give it away? Of having stories if I don't tell them to others? Of having wealth if I don't share it? I don't intend to be cremated with any of it! It is in giving that I connect with others, with the world and with the divine."
........ Isabel Allende

"Don't ask yourself what the world needs - ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
........ Harold Thurman Whitman

"The real voyage of discovery consists not of seeing new landscapes, but in having new eyes...."
........ Marcel Proust

"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.. you have no such accurate remembrance of a country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle...."
........ Ernest Hemingway

"Ambition leads me not only father than any other man has been before me, but as far as I think it is possible for man to go."
........ James Cook

"The grand show is enternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapour is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls."
........ John Muir

"The bicycle is the most civilised conveyance known to man. Other forms of transport grow daily more nightmarish. Only the bicycle remains pure in heart."
........ Iris Murdoch

"Photography for me is not looking, it's feeling. If you can't feel what you're looking at, then you're never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your picture...."
........ Don McCullin

Calendar in aid of Cyclists Fighting Cancer

(viewed 1039 times)
Since I broke my elbow on the mountain bike ride between Madrid and Lisbon it didn't seem right to ask people to sponsor me, so I've created this calendar to raise money for my adopted charity instead.

It celebrates those people who - all unexpected - walk into our lives and give, regardless of their own circumstances and features local people and local places.
There's a limited edition of 100 numbered ones available now at £15 and providing these go I'll do a different version with different images and different paper quality for £10 later. You can buy the limited edition one at various Wanstead businesses or direct from me

My posters have been delivered!

They're to go in Stevens Motors as part of the promotion of the charity calendar that should be arriving tomorrow...

(mobile phone included for scale)

So I'm up against a wall deadline-wise, should be concentrating on getting the Angel project finished. So close to missing the deadline it's not funny - and what do I find myself doing? Mucking around with Photoshop.

Thing is, Jackie looks fantastic whatever I do. Thanks again Jackie, I'll send you a link to all the shots when they're finally done

may have to rethink
