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

OK, dinner, but that wouldn't have worked as a title

Good to meet you!

Sprocket says:

Blimey you're quick posting this.

Nice meeting you too D(inner)maka.

Caine says:

:D *Waves to D. and Sprocket*

22nd Sep 2006, 01:18

Sprocket says:

*Sprocket waves back to Caine

Mandy – "mobloggery?", hmm, I will have to add that one to my databanks

D – good to see you managed to catch my best side ;-)

22nd Sep 2006, 06:11

Dhamaka says:

*waves back to Sprocket and Caine
*jumps up and down in front of Mandy as if to say 'and why didn't you wave?

Sprocket - I was being kind, next time be prepared to be more fully introduced to the other mobloggers...

22nd Sep 2006, 06:22

Rick says:

*Waves to Dhamaka and Sprocket.

Edit: What did you have for dinner? Hmmmm? Looks good.

22nd Sep 2006, 07:16

Sprocket says:

* more waving – feeling a bit giddy now

Mandy – you is in heapum big trubble for not waving, quick, do it now

Dhamaka – thanks for being kind, and glad to hear there will be a next time :-)

btw – doesn't my ear look pink, it must've been the shrimp I had for lunch, or because I was stuck on tube for nearly two hours – did I mention that . . . ?

Geodyne says:

Moblog meetery indeed. Always a fun thing!

22nd Sep 2006, 10:24

Dhamaka says:

Hi Rick - it was good and always is. Mixed Mezze ?spelling?, which will now mean that Geodyne, Bronxelf, Uber_Spy, Pheonix and Nige will know where we went (if they bother to read this post) and pretty much everyone else by inference

Sprocket - you'll find that if you remember to breathe while waving, things will get a lot less dizzy. And you approved this photo... did you mention that you were stuck in the tube? yes. Did I accept it as an excuse?....

22nd Sep 2006, 10:29

Geodyne says:

*just laughs*

I should have guessed. Really.

22nd Sep 2006, 10:30

Dhamaka says:

G - you're meant to be having tea

22nd Sep 2006, 10:31

Geodyne says:

Soon. Very soon. I'm waiting for a map to be delivered to me.

22nd Sep 2006, 10:33

Dhamaka says:


22nd Sep 2006, 10:43

Sprocket says:

G – Ooh tea, that sounds good, afterall it is practically elevenses. Now, cake or biscuits . . . hmm?

* breathing now "Hey, that helps"

D – Yes, I approved THAT photo, but don't know if you managed to pop off a couple of sneaky ones while I was concentrating on the grub, mmmm.

22nd Sep 2006, 10:52

Dhamaka says:

if I did I'll keep them as blackmail and only use them if you're *ever* late *again*

come to that, I don't know what sneaky shots you took of me...

22nd Sep 2006, 10:55

Sprocket says:

I'll drive the bloomin' tube myself next time, rather than run the risk of another tardy.

No, need for me to take any shots – photographic memory ;-)

22nd Sep 2006, 11:03

Geodyne says:

I still don't have that map, so I went off to have tea anyway. With a cheese and tomato pastry, Yum.

22nd Sep 2006, 12:13

Sprocket says:

D – is that hmm re: photo-memory or cheese and tomato??

22nd Sep 2006, 13:11

Sprocket says:

you really shouldn't hold a grudge against cheese and tomato

So what's the story behind the "dark room" tag?
Eh? Eh?
C'mon, 'fess-up.
