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

Not my shots - I wasn't there. My mate Tim sent them over

Dhamaka NLI says:

It was in Central London Thursday to Sunday. Kostika and I were nearly late at Harrods because of it on Friday and I saw some then.

I think that it was at Picadilly and finishing in or near Regents Park, but it may have been St James' Park. Teflon has some good photos and quite a full description on his blog..

Dhamaka NLI says:

That's what Tim said - the kids enjoyed it but the adults were all stunned back to their childhoods by the hugeness of the puppets (or something like that)

the puppet girl is just a tad scary for my liking. the fotos on the website you linked when she was in the backk of the bus just scared the sh*t out of me

On the Sunday the girl was in St James Park, the elephant at Piccadilly Circus, they met on on the Mall and then headed to Horse Guards Parade. The two things that were, I think, most striking for me were the sheer size - it gave me back that kind of toy-size perspective I've not known since I was a toddler - and the naturalness of the puppets. Neither the girl nor the elephant was in anyway a caricature, they both looked, moved and behaved so naturally. Lost in the stills but the expression and movement of the little girl was utterly and disarmingly charming. I shall miss her. t xx

My sister-in-law says the same. Her kids were captivated and the youngest (3) hasn't stopped talking about it yet
