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

I still have more work than I can comfortably manage and you still won't see me around much for a while, but this was too good to not share

He heh. For a moment I thought they thought your first name was Edrich too.

I had a mental image of this charming old man, slight Eastern European accent, cardigan and slippers....

I'm thinking about my dear mum who was born in 1922 and her reactions and general fraility and I shudder to think that her age group are getting cheap car insurance.

BTW She has never driven and she's NOT Dhamaka.....

' Dear MR Ives, From our records we see that it is time for you to come along to the clinic for your smear test!!!!!! '

ROFL shades of Dorian Gray ...

Sprocket says:

GAEL - Have you seen the new range of Penguin Classics? they allow you to draw you own picture on the cover - and oddly enough Dorian Gray is in the selection. Now I know who to draw on the cover. Previously I was thinking of putting a nice rendition of Sir Cliff on my copy.

I could go with the picture/letter thing but I don't want to be an evil guy... while being mildly bad is fun and not the same at all, I'm doing just fine as a girl thank-you
