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...."

"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...."

"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...."

Last night
Kim and David took the intermediate lesson at the Crypt and I practised panning

Sprocket says:

ooh, Kim's a hottie.

2nd Dec 2007, 22:01

Dhamaka says:

they both are lovely

2nd Dec 2007, 22:03

Sprocket says:

I was going to add that I'm sure he's fabulous too, just to redress the balance.

2nd Dec 2007, 22:04

Dhamaka says:

they make a great couple, for sure

2nd Dec 2007, 22:06

Sprocket says:

"couple"? - damn!!!!

2nd Dec 2007, 22:08

Dhamaka says:

That'll make Kim smile. She will probably find these images and read your comment. I know that she found these because she asked if I was Dhamaka

2nd Dec 2007, 22:09

Sprocket says:

Well, if she tracks you down and asks who Sprocket is, feel free to pass on my number.

2nd Dec 2007, 22:12

Dhamaka says:

will do

you could always learn tango too, you know...

2nd Dec 2007, 22:14

Sprocket says:

I know, Tango women are like the sexiest women on the planet, but I'm just crap at the dancing part.

2nd Dec 2007, 22:16

Dhamaka says:

you've never tried!!

2nd Dec 2007, 22:16

Sprocket says:

I stank at that lesson. And even going home and listening to the Evita soundtrack for 6hrs solid, did nothing to improve my footwork.

2nd Dec 2007, 22:18

Dhamaka says:

you so did not!
Besides, it was your first one and wasn't really for beginners

it's just practice.... and walking without jiggling your hips....which you manage all the time when you're not in a tango lesson.......

btw I'm going back to work now

2nd Dec 2007, 22:21

Sprocket says:

I can't help it, I'm a natural jiggler.

I'm off to the tub now.

Don't work too late.

winespy says:

what a beautiful couple, no's 1, 5 and 6 are my favourite, stunning


2nd Dec 2007, 22:32

itchymoblog says:

Loving these ... penultimate is my favourite. Love the dynamism of it.

2nd Dec 2007, 23:36

That older guy in the top shot is totally staring at her assets.

I usually think of tango as a martial art...


3rd Dec 2007, 04:30

Dhamaka says:

thanks guys

Laszlo - I've never heard feed described as 'assets' before...

Sprocket - you don't jiggle when you walk so you could tango if you wanted

billion says:

last night I was drinking argentinian wine and listening to gypsy tango music. this morning I see this pictures.

clearly this is a sign that I need to a) learn to dance proper or b) move to south america...

nige says:

something about that third shot i quite like. actually i think it's the cut of his jib and his whistle.

3rd Dec 2007, 10:17

minkey says:

Love the elegance of Kim. Something unique to tango

3rd Dec 2007, 17:34

Dhamaka says:

billion - or both!

nige - thank you (even if it is just an observation)

minkey - you may be right. I've met a number of elegant tango couples who are also very much in love..

JokerXL says:

Great stuff D. You're really mastering that D80, lovely images in what were probably tricky conditions.
I've never danced a (proper) step in my life.
I was watching a guy from the rugby club, on that country & western night a while back, whizzing around the floor with his partner while I did the "deliverance stomp" and I thought "I wanna learn to do that".
Is it too late? Do I need a doctor's certificate?

3rd Dec 2007, 21:30

Dhamaka NLI and working says:

thank Joker

It's never too late to learn tango Joker - in tango doctors certificates are only necessary for the hard of thinking and despite what Sprocket believes, if you can walk you can learn to dance...

thanks Viv
