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

Keeping my fingers crossed........

Geodyne says:

Lovely shots.

But what about the macro?

29th Sep 2006, 14:28

Dhamaka says:

thank you paintist and MrI

Sprocket - err... yes...?

549A - yes, so did I :D mine are still crossed too

Walla_wala - so far, for sure, although there was a wobbly moment last night when I thought the reception was rubbish. Turns out to be Sprocket's phone because the reception was fine when I talked to Uber_Spy

Geo - don't know. I've not found anything to really test it on and am too busy to go out and look. Maybe in the weekend..

Geodyne says:

But the reception wasn't that great when you were talking to me, either...

29th Sep 2006, 14:57

Dhamaka says:

no, but it was fine talking to Uber, so I don't think it's my phone

*crosses toes

Sprocket says:

Like I said, Uber has special spy technology boosting the signal when you talk to her.

29th Sep 2006, 15:49

Dhamaka says:

either my handset works or it doesn't..
Uber has proved it works :P

Dhamaka says:

There were parts of the day where the rain reminded me of the edges of a hurricane I once narrowly avoided
