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

That bee just flew into my shot while I was playing with the macro. I'd never let one get that close normally..

15th Sep 2006, 22:01

Yeah, I was gonna say you were being pretty bold getting so close to the stinging little bugger. Brilliantly captured tho.

Caine says:

15th Sep 2006, 23:59

walla_walla says:

no wonder the bee got in the picture, these are great.... gotta love the phone too.... i was thinking of getting a pda phone, but now i'm slowly changing my mind :-)

Dhamaka says:

Oh wow a HL. Thank you!

Twiglet - thanks, that's a real compliment

Caine & mysocalled - thank you but to tell you the truth that shot didn't come out quite the way I wanted

Sprocket - don't worry, I am..

Viv - yes it is, isn't it

EvilMink - hope you had a great time

Walla_Walla - it didn't stay for long though. I had to make the same choice but I'm getting happier and happier with this phone and judging by her photos, Gael is too..

Spongevid, Hotdog, Jorge, Swamprose, factotum thank you too

nige says:

ooh hello, this is niiiiice. well deserved h/l, and amazing for the k800i.

16th Sep 2006, 10:05

Dhamaka says:

thank you kindly sirrah - and not at its macro max even in the bee shot

16th Sep 2006, 10:52

Gael says:

I'm still not convinced about the macro on this camera. These are the only shots that I've seen anywhere so far that are worthy of the term 'macro' IMHO
Well done

ElphsHouse says:

I don't know if I'm more jealous of your camera or your sun flowers. ; )

anonymous says:

Fantastic. Brilliant. Very well done!

16th Sep 2006, 15:58

Dhamaka says:

Gael, thank you - but I'm still having problems with the extremes. I'm wondering if it needs to go back - again :(

Thank you ElphsHouse - be jealous of my phonecam, the sunflowers aren't mine and they're 7cm across at the most.

anonymous - nice compliments but who are you?
