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."

"The real voyage of discovery consists not of seeing new landscapes, but in having new eyes...."

"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...."

........ 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...."

Moblog Meet? Tour de France - London

(viewed 1406 times)
Bookmark and Share
Great photo op and a pleasant day out. The LCC is arranging special "priority" viewing of the event. There's a Prologue on 7th July and Stage 1 on 8th July.

They actively encourage groups, people new to cycling or unfamiliar with London.

I thought it might be fun to have a group of us go as a moblog meet. If you're interested let me know and I'll set it up on the forums

Excellent idea. I already have plans to go and watch the prologue with friends, but I still might be able to fit something in around that, and I'd definitely be up for anything the day after.

Dhamaka says:

wow - OK guys.
Apparently priority is given to groups, so let me know which of both days is better on the forum

24th Jun 2007, 02:43

Dhamaka says:

Sounds like a good idea.

Dhamaka says:

Thanks 540.
Are you going to bring the family?

540air says:

Only saw this a few minutes ago, so I'll ask SLG about it when she gets in to see if we're free that day. I'd like to though :)

24th Jun 2007, 12:01

I just can't see how it would be practical to haul our lot over there, so it's looking like a solo trip for me, but you never know.

24th Jun 2007, 14:57

Dhamaka says:

:(
but it'll be great to meet in person with you - and whoever else can come

We're going to be in London on the 7th!!! We've got to go to see that our friend's fiance does actually exist, and give Crickson a (somewhat too late) chance to vet him before the big day. Tour de France was mentioned so maybe we'll be able to catch up with you too? Be good to see you anyway :)

24th Jun 2007, 16:01

Dhamaka says:

that's fantastic!
Of course - let me know when you're free and I'll let you know where I/we are!

MaggieD says:

Sorry not to post this on the forum, but it doesn't seem to want to log me in :(
I have a free afternoon on the 7th .... so if you can let me know where you will be from 1.00pm onwards (til 6.30pm) .... I can meet up ......
