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

Jesus H Christ in a bauble!

You've invented a whole new blasphemous exclamation. : )

11th Jan 2006, 18:25

Twiglet says:

The Beloved has just taken a look and says it looks more like Cat Stevens. Hasn't got quite the same ring to it though somehow, has it?

11th Jan 2006, 18:27

Dhamaka says:

Not sure which one I'd prefer!

11th Jan 2006, 18:34

11th Jan 2006, 22:08

Twiglet says:

Having seen that pic, I've got to agree with Bronxelf.

11th Jan 2006, 22:19

Gael says:

You do realise that you could sell that via Scoopt and end up with a queue of pilgrims coming to see the sign? : )
Can't wait to see what you can find for Easter!

11th Jan 2006, 22:23

bronxelf says:

So long as she charges them admission.

Thank you, PT Barnum.

11th Jan 2006, 22:24

Dhamaka says:

12th Jan 2006, 05:31

bronxelf says:

12th Jan 2006, 05:33

Dhamaka says:

12th Jan 2006, 05:36

FilbertFox says:

Maybe Dan Fogelberg is a reincarnation of Jesus?

12th Jan 2006, 08:36

spoon_lamp says:

Maybe Jesus is a re-incarnation of The Dude!

12th Jan 2006, 12:02

12th Jan 2006, 18:24

Twiglet says:

FilbertFox says:

13th Jan 2006, 08:41

Dhamaka says:

13th Jan 2006, 16:28

Cor... Missed this when it was posted. Fantastic photo!

Seeing as a grilled cheese sandwich with the face of the virgin Mary sold for ~$100000 on ebay, I'd recommend putting it on there!

13th Jan 2006, 18:29

Dhamaka says:

the photo or the sandwich?

thanks Rare - like the new avatar

13th Jan 2006, 18:40

Whoops; I was wrong, it only made $28000 (see here), but that's still not bad for a 10 year old sandwich.

Cheers! I've finally got round to becoming a member, so yay for avatars!

13th Jan 2006, 19:12
