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

thanks for the highlight!

Alfie - Before I was a writer my company's offices were in 1 Canada Square. Now I work from home (or wherever) but it's where my gym is.

I'm spending the week seeing what it's like to train at 5:30am every morning..

Hey Dhamaka, you write in spanish very well. La foto esta muy bonita :)

Not sure if I mentioned that spanish is my first language...... although I speak it very well, I'm not the best at writing in spanish.

domo arigato gozaimasu Kozika San :D

Thanks Walla_Walla. I think you did originally mention you were of Latin descent (where exactly? do you know?)

I think Cheso summed my level of Spanish well in an email 'Muy bien tu espaÃ?nol! Se entiende todo tu mensaje' ... My interpretation - It's OK, sounds a bit wierd and the grammar is well wobbly, but I understand it all anyway... *grins*

thanks EyeQ. I'd love you to explain the rationale for your postings sometime..

Dhamaka says:

thanks again Rare - all this praise is making me quite giddy! *doesn't quite manage to fake girly woozy thinggie for giggles*

2nd Feb 2006, 18:48

A good fake is to *rest hand on forehead and faint backwards into chez longe*. That may, however, be a touch too theatrical.

let's see
*rests hand on forehad and faints backwards into.. arms of gorgeous guy*
