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...."

anonymous says:

very nice composition

19th May 2007, 20:24

PR says:

first one is like the chess on the water.. while glancing them over I thought that you have made some preliminary installation before shooting

19th May 2007, 20:47

Dhamaka says:

thank you

PR - thanks, it was better at night in the firelight but I had a meeting and couldn't play then

Caine says:

Stunning! #s 1, 5 and 7 for me. Especially the last shot.

taniwha says:

good stuff. You are doing lots of quite thoughtful piccies on this trip. Feeling inspired?

20th May 2007, 08:59

Dhamaka says:

Bronxelf - I'm pleased you like them!

Thanks all

Taniwha - Partly, also I have the time to myself to think things through

Also the couple who own and run this place are particularly lovely people and I said I'd send them some photos to put on their website. It's nice to hear you've noticed the thought because I was trying hard to take shots that told something of their place as well as its surroundings

Boet - I wondered... hehe

The morning light here has a wonderful warmth to it. I think that's what really makes the shadows

That surprised me because Mendoza is a desert and I had imagined it to be harsher and lighter
