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...."

I've been sorting through photos for an article on Argentine spas and found this series...
so I thought I'd share

This is the round-up:
Getting Pampered in the Spas of Argentina

It was stunning Beth. Magical. And you could see all the way to Uruguay (that's what the business men were looking at)

beth says:

Dhamaka says:

oh so do I
:D
and the 24-hour breakfast thing that you can't see but goes on at the spa bar...

I can see why you might miss all that. That top one's lovely too :)

7th Jan 2008, 17:29

Wow! The colours in that top shot are amazing :)

7th Jan 2008, 18:10

So, when are you treating me to a trip here :-)

paintist says:

sigh......I would miss it too.....

Dhamaka says:

*sigh

But I've just been approached to do an article on some Argentine hotels so I only need to find a few more commissions to justify getting back :D

Sprocket - if I could I would

7th Jan 2008, 18:52

Dhamaka says:

actually the Panamericano is by no means the best hotel in BAires (or the best I stayed in) but they have been very good to me and I do my best to get them as much coverage as possible. And the photos of the spa should speak for themselves.

I'm lucky enough to have been able to write for Luxury Latin America. A few more of my pieces will be published with them soon and I've just been approached to write some more. The editor is very particular about the standard of establishment included - so I imagine that even you would like the hotels I review for him...

Carpe - truth be told I was happier with that piece before it got edited. There were far fewer commas in it for a start

thank you wingmaker and winespy. As I said, if I could...

JEsson says:

I think I could really enjoy a holidat at a place with such a beautiful sunset and a bit of luxury (speaking as one who tends to fail at holidays!). Thanks for sharing, D :-)

Don't cry for argentina!

That said, Buenos Aires is soooo beautiful, difficult not to if you got a soul connection with it. I was just thinking about how cool it was on the way to work.
