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...."

minkey says:

Hmmm...knew there was a very good reason...any more very cool not 3D glasses lol

Thanks Caine - Even though "hmm... Jessica Alba in lycra" is not a response I'd expect when I ask a guy to the cinema, it was indeed good fun.

Ali - no, he's too young for me ;)
(very late edit - I'm going mad.. this was in response to something Minkey said)

Minkey - Sprocket refused to use the 3D glasses provided for an advert just before the film...

Sprocket says:

D could not be tempted to have a quick go on Ridge Racer - can you believe it. I think she was keen on spending the rest of the evening in Claire's Accessories, but I was having none of it.

However, leaving the cinema we were treated to a front row seat performance of the Trocadero's fine security staff beating the crap out of an unruly punter with a stool. Apparently he was wearing the wrong sort of trainers, or was a bit posh or something. Either way, they didn't like him.

Sounds like a great night out. Cinemas and maltesers are best of friends.

Dhamaka says:

It was
(except for the performance Sprocket mentioned)
Tonight was too :)

oh.. and I'd say that Sprocket is a better friend to maltesers than cinemas....
