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.

"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...."

...not my words, I'm afraid, I read it somewhere...

Euphro says:

Wow, gorgeous :) And lovely thought and sentiment.

Thanks Euphro

Thanks for the highlight!

That must have been the fastest clicky in the West!

Euphro says:

You're welcome :) (This is a really great photo, one I wouldn't be surprised to see with a high "interestingness" rating on Flickr) :)

I've never given a thought to my Maldives photos before, probably because of what happened there. I only thought of this one because it went so well with the words I wanted to send Bmal.

I must get round to setting up a Flickr account. Maybe when I'm back from Argentina

You'll be disappointed to learn that there is already a Dhamaka on there, with an unused account :(

Nice words and pic.

Nix says:

That is amazing! It's almost like it's so perfect it's been painted, reminds me of a David Hockney. What happened in Maldives or is that something you'd rather not talk about? Either way top pic, would make a nice poster! x

It's a pleasure bmal, you might want to try this too...

Seaneboy, what island? You're going to be just at the end of the season where Manta drop their young - that's something I'd love to see but haven't managed yet. Go snorkelling with them if you possibly can, it's an unforgettable experience. And be very careful to rinse your ears out with fresh water after you have been in the sea, at the time of year you're going there are loads of plankton in the water which, if left in the ears can cause a nasty earache.

Thank you FF, Twiglet, Joker and Nix. Nix I'm happy to tell you about it but I don't want to sound like a bore on open forum. If you email me through my contact option I'll explain all *grins*

Joker - I don't think London is too bad at the moment. Not too cold to cycle and the last couple of days have been quite bright in between the rainy spots. :)

Noice. Great photo D! Those clear blue waters make me want to go scuba diving again!

20th Feb 2006, 19:03

thanks Rare. Isn't it a little cool for that where you are at the mo?
