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...."

Dhamaka says:

:) thak you - you should see them if you haven't already. They're the first Regent St lights I've liked!

nige says:

got enough images here, have ya?

29th Nov 2007, 19:24

Twiglet says:

No, haven't been up to see the lights yet. We tend to wait until the Tree in Trafalgar square is lit which is usually the first Thursday in December. Even if we don't go up for that we will definitely be up there at some point before Christmas. Can't wait, these do look very lovely.

Carpe: I know what you mean. There's a little turning called Christopher place or something like that and it is usually very pretty.

nige says:

St Christopers Place, Twiglet, you're right. It's just opposity South Molton Street and the lights there are fab at Xmas. In the summer, it's got some of the best al fresco eateries i've been to. Lovely.

Ooooh sciency!

Dhamaka says:

Carpe - thank you but I love the colours in these

Nige - the colours are all gorgeous. It was difficult enough to 'not' post the blue-to-green transitions as well!

Twiglet, Nige - St Christopher's place is lovely and used to be the site of my favourite Japanese restaurant. Carpe's talking about Heddon St, which is left off Regent St if you're walking from Picadilly Circus

Taniwha - indeed
