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"

"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

I like that they fade.

Some of the most beautiful things in the world are beautiful because of their epheremity.

Dhamaka says:

thanks guys.

I've said it before, but I was blown away by the number there were this morning. I tried to post all of them, but deleted some because there are only so many ways a kiss can be crossed..

will go look!

Enviro says:

They do look pretty cool, but it is possible that the increased contrails we see these days to increased air traffic may contribute to global warming ... I don't think the jury is in yet though. There is no doubt that the increased air traffic spewing large amounts of pollutants into the upper atmosphere is not doing us any good!

Watch Al Gore's movie if you don't believe Enviro!

Dhamaka says:

don't need a movie to be worried about things like this, it's why I started writing!

Geodyne says:

Er, Enviro? The increased contrails we see in the sky may contribute to global dimming, not global warming. They are very much not the same thing; in fact in a way they are opposite effects. I can post more of an explanation if people want details.

'epheremity' Geodyne, what a beautiful word

for Gael
*Raises fist in threatening manner and collapses in laughter because she can't take herself seriously

I'll do you a deal Gael - both of us work for the next 2 hours and come back and check on each other then..

Enviro says:

Thanks Geodyne ... I am well aware of global dimming. I should have used the catch all phrase climate change as the CO2 from increased air traffic leads to global warming and the aerosols to global dimming. However, as I am sure you aware, the aerosols can lead to an increase in the nightime temps (keeping terrestial radiation in) and lower daytime temps. (keeping solar radiation out) ... so depending on the time of day the temp. can go up (although overall it would likely go down due to global dimming so you are still correct)!!

Anyway, my point was to help people understand that although these images are beautful, they do have a more sinister side!

Gael says:

D, was good to talk : )
have a great weekend, I *promise* (crosses fingers just in case) to be good for the next few days ...

Dhamaka says:

it was good to talk Gael. Any time you want a really good procrastination, you know where to come...

As for being good, I don't think either of us have much choice :-(
