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

Dhamaka says:

it is a beautiful day, one of those with loads of contrasts but sadly Ilford is not beautiful and the traffic was horrendous

M_F it was only for a meeting, I'm back now and like the canals on the way into Central London a lot more..

The weather can make up for a multitude of sins though. Looks like a lovely sunny ride, even if the traffic was bad.

Beats being stuck in traffic in a fogged-up car in the rain!

I wonder what you're referring to there Geo...hehe

I did Joker!

Sprocket says:

G – he he, nice swipe

D – sunny and blue here too, with the kind of big fluffy clouds you could take a slice of and eat with jam and tea

3rd Oct 2006, 12:35

Dhamaka says:

but not chocolate or cute teabags...
I wonder why..

Nice...I like the last shot in particular. :)

Dhamaka says:

Thank you Caine!

Dhamaka says:

the last shot is pixel-y
It has been happening a lot
I am not sure if I have the energy to go for phone #7 but since I absolutely don't have the time atm it doesn't much matter

JokerXL says:

Did you zoom in on the last one D?
That'd make it "Pixely"

3rd Oct 2006, 19:13

Dhamaka says:

not enough to be happy that it did pixelate. No where near enough...

mouseninja says:

really Mouse? I hadn't noticed it on my macro shots - not to this extent, anyway :(

I've had text messages fail on me - have to send them 8 or 9 times before I finally get a message sent. Anyone know if this is likely to be due to the phone or the network?
