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

not a good day for a ride

Twiglet says:

It was a terrific rainstorm over this side...

26th Nov 2006, 09:47

Dhamaka says:

just got here - did you get the hail too? and lots of lightening?

26th Nov 2006, 09:48

Twiglet says:

I thought the end of the world had come! On top of the rain, hail, thunder and lightening, the sky went a very evil colour! To cap it all we have a leaking roof....

26th Nov 2006, 09:49

Dhamaka says:

sorry about the roof. We didn't get the evil sky. I'm off now - bye

Twiglet says:

Have a great day x

nige says:

i say stay in and do some jumps. looks wet out there...

26th Nov 2006, 09:59

how this gladdens my heart, to see england being rained on while wales remains relatively dry (ie just damp) - it doesn't happen often!

26th Nov 2006, 10:20

Twiglet says:

Ahh, but this isn't just England it's London where we've had a fair bit of rain just lately. good job too as we are now beginning to see some of our lakes and ponds coming back at last....

Anyway, Wales looks lovely in the rain...

Sprocket says:

I had the leaky roof too - hailstones have just joined the party.

Staying in with lots of tea and biscuits today.

Tori says:

Looks like you could have taken a raft ride.

27th Nov 2006, 02:48

i like your thinking tori!

Dhamaka says:

Thanks guys -
Tori - rafting on a roof could be quite precipitous. Maybe you have stumbled upon a new extreme sport.... Roof Rafting...

today's lovely and as soon as I've got to a reasonable place in the comp arrangements I'm off for a bike ride

27th Nov 2006, 12:47

I heard about this. My mum (who's in Loughton) said that loads of the roads were flooded and the thunder was actually shaking her house!

27th Nov 2006, 18:47

Dhamaka says:

it looked like the epicentre stayed over Loughton way for a while, so I'm not surprised!

27th Nov 2006, 18:53

jesson says:

Was there anything left of your plants after the storm?

Sorry to hear about your roof- makes storms more scary...

27th Nov 2006, 21:50

Dhamaka says:

I've tied them to the fencing with wire, so it'll take more than a storm and a gusting 5 to send them away..

of course they could well be waterlogged now but it's too cold and dark to go and check!
