My facebook

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

Cycled right across London and back to deliver

In the end, the call of the ice cream vans
was too loud to resist.

Dhamaka says:

Yes, Geo. Brilliant. Now I've got the London Dust off my bod I'll make some lunch and get on with the writing.

I've postponed an interview I was supposed to be doing in an hour and a half so am feeling like things might be possible again.

Oooh, it would be a lovely day to sit in the globe and see a play :)

daz says:

Dhamaka: Very cool. I want to see a play there SO badly... When we went there to visit on a school trip, we only took a guided tour of it because the tickets for an actual play were so expensive. :(

seaneeboy says:

They guarentee 200 £5 tickets for each performance now, if i'm not mistaken. I got a seat and a cusion and a glass of wine for uner £15 when I went to see a winters tale... and it was fantastic :)

daz says:

Oooh, that sounds so lovely. :D

One day, one day, I shall...

Dhamaka says:

Could try and sort it for that Sunday. If you wanted to give it a go I'd drop you there earlier, go on to the flamenco and if you're not successful & feel like it you can come to the flamenco instead

daz says:

Oh thanks C, but the boy is not so fond of Shakespeare, much less in English.. ;) I'll have to do that when I'm on my own / with other Shakespeare lovers. ;)

Geodyne says:

Next time then, Daz. Perhaps as a group activity? I'm sure we could rope in Gael.

did I sleep? Unfortunately too much - it got to a point where my body was telling me in no uncertain terms that I'd get very ill if I didn't.

Good Gael (just got in from the gym) says:

Funny the Globe should come up, I was going to mention this next week. I went last year and got totally sunburned, which was pretty ironic given that we were watching The Tempest!
They're doing a Roman season, I fancy going to see Anthony and Cleopatra. They also do Shakespeare in Regent's Park
