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.

"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...."

Dhamaka says:

very funny Nige... Marcello has a similar shot of me, I like dance shots of feet and this is a good place to get them from as you well know..

22nd Sep 2006, 16:06

'geth them'? didn't know you had a lisp ;o)

22nd Sep 2006, 16:07

OJ says:

Oh to be so photogenic! Some lovely shots of you - the top one is particularly good, looks like an unawares "catch".

There are a a few photos of me "doing a number 3" in existence too. Must be a moblogger pose.... ;-)

Geodyne says:

Lovely shots of you, all. I can recognise you in all of them - even #3!

22nd Sep 2006, 16:24

Dhamaka says:

OJ - I'm sure it's one of many moblogger poses we all assume and thanks, but be sure I'm not this photogenic all the time...

thanks guys, they're all good photographers aren't they

Geo - do I want to know what you mean by that?

22nd Sep 2006, 16:26

Geodyne says:

I've seen you in full photography action before, is what I mean. And I know how effective that post is at getting a god picture.

Dhamaka says:

Someone has highlighted one of Trim's photos - is that OK? I mean, it's obviously done by him and everything, especially since I'm in it but...

He asked me to post them though..

22nd Sep 2006, 16:41

Dhamaka says:

if the HL isn't OK could you please, please wait to delete it till he tells me - or posts here that he has seen it - I'd love him to see it first

MaggieD says:

These are wonderful .... you are a such a stunning figure .... dancing, standing, sitting or squatting .... not only that but such a lovely, funny, caring lady as well .... no need to thank me .... just make sure you have spelt my name right on the cheque ..:-; .... all joking aside, beautful pics and well deserved sentiments ....

22nd Sep 2006, 16:57

trim says:

ooh, what's it mean if I've been high-lighted? sounds good. glad to see you capitulated and posted the pics of yourself D - only fair. but what about the picture of you and Ron dancing tango? that is super-kudos, like having a photo of yourself playing guitar with Eric Clapton, or Scale Electrics with Michael Schumacher. don't be modest, go on, post that one too...

Dhamaka says:

Trim - go to the moblog home page and you'll see (hopefully), it means one of our community editors has selected your shot as being worth highlighting! It is a *good* *thing*

(edit) Given that Ron doesn't do interviews or media appearances of any kind I don't think it's right to post his photo

Maggie - thanks, that's a lovely thing to hear and the cheque is in the post :D
