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

back to the old plotblogging
and for Sprocket too

paintist says:

tomato sauce with everything D ?..btw is this still the same plotblog or are you running a couple at the sametime?

Dhamaka says:

this is back to the old plotblogging Paintist which is admittedly quite ambitious

the plotblog post before this was a quick and unplanned 'get well plotblog' for Mrs540air. Now we're back to the old theme.

oh, and Sprocket didn't believe in The Tomato, hence 'dual purpose'

20th Sep 2006, 09:06

looks like a sceen from attack of the killer tomatos

20th Sep 2006, 09:33

Sprocket says:

20th Sep 2006, 09:35

20th Sep 2006, 10:34

paintist says:

I give up on your flippin' plotbloggin'
never the faintest idea what the heck you're on about.
(never was good at cryptic crosswords either)

20th Sep 2006, 12:26

Sprocket says:

Can you get chili and tomato flavour crisps?

20th Sep 2006, 12:37

paintist says:

indeed you can....sweet chilli as well, sensation(s)al, aha do you have an idea ?!!!!

20th Sep 2006, 12:42

Sprocket says:

Oh yes, I like those.

I just have crisps on my mind now . . . mmm lunchtime, though I've already eaten mine.

Sprocket says:

just noticed the little icons top left – they could be vitally important

20th Sep 2006, 12:47

paintist says:

oh :-( so you are not putting crisps forward as a clue.....

20th Sep 2006, 12:47

Dhamaka says:

the little icons on the left are vitally important to me - they help me work faster!

20th Sep 2006, 12:51

Sprocket says:

no – not putting crisps forward as a clue sorry :-(

I must do my own plot-blog, something to do with chocolate or doughnuts

Thanks Jorge, it's nearly impossible to take a bad photo in Argentina - at least in the places I went to (Upsalla, Bariloche, Perito Moreno, Neuquen, Rio Negro, Mendoza, Buenos Aires, Salta)... I'm really hoping my plans come together and that I get there to do The Biggie next year

21st Sep 2006, 07:56

ooohh so nice

21st Sep 2006, 14:38

ah yes - 'The Biggie'! Its been about a year since that idea first surfaced hasn't it?!?

Jigalong says:

Unbelieveable. Excellant foreground and background focus

21st Sep 2006, 15:17

Dhamaka says:

thank you very much Angel and Jigalong (praise indeed from you)

jetblack, yes, but as you know, I've done the info gathering and Proof of Concept. What you don't know but probably can imagine is that it takes a *lot* of time and perseverance to get the necessary sponsorship and media commitment. In fact I'm beginning to understand that less than a year after Proof of Concept is incredibly ambitious...
