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

21st May 2006, 14:45

Gael says:

Beth - all the Dawsons were missed
Nige - how did you work out that they were mine? (blushes)
Dhamaka - you are now my officially appointed personal photographer! How the hell did you make my legs look that good? No salary available as yet, alas, but 'when' I publish my books you can do the jacket pic for a hefty fee ...

Viv says:

think I need a 4 door car - not just to transport my less than mobile parents (now my 93 year old mum's broken her leg and will no longer be able to climb into the back!) but to transport H,B,S and D. The car was just the last straw - 5 really don't fit into a Ka - especially when one is 6'8' so really needs as much leg room as poss and only just avoids not having to bend his head! Add to that the pre booked theatre plus......other minor problems - it wasn't to be - which is very sad as Cambridge isn't too bad to get to by car and we really would have liked to be there!

If my chuck taylors had a heel on them like those, I would probably be dead already. I'm not very steady in heels these days. Probably has something to do with the whole needing a knee replacement thing. After I have the surgery, no heels for over a year. All my pretty shoes will think I've abandoned them!
