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.

"Every time I see an adult on a bicycle I no longer despair for the future of the human race"
........ H G Wells

"All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better"
........ Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Luck favours the prepared mind"
........ Louis Pasteur

"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...."
........ Don McCullin

these were sent by friends recently. I only understood why they had been worried about me when I saw what I must have looked like to them!

KD says:

Is that Fred edging in from the left of Right said Fred fame?

I think it is often hard to see yourself as others do and I agree with Nige, a little tired in the bottom one perhaps, and why wouldn't you.
As for the top shot you look positively gorgeous !

Carpe NLI says:

That last one was me BTW.
(Trying to avoid time on internet at the moment as far too much going on in RL to be able to spend the time on it that isn't work related.)
If you are still feeling poorly since Argentina D I hope you push the British medical profession to sort it out.

Dhamaka says:

Thank you Looker and domo arigato Kozika-san.

*accepts hugs happily from Kozika, Sprocket and Carpe

But you other two who've met me in RL too ... Maybe it doesn't show so well because the shot's so small but if you have seen such dark rings around my eyes before I'd like to know when - and why you didn't say something.

Carpe - as you know although I'm no longer ill I'm still desperately tired and I'm trying to get them to do just that

But you're right in that I was having fun..... I still love my job :D

Caine says:

You look absolutely beautiful to me. I know you've been run ragged though, so I expect you are past tired. Rest, treat yourself - at every possible moment you can.

MaggieD says:

Just been catching up on your blog ..... a week (away) is a long time on Moblog ....

.... think you look as beautiful as ever, maybe a little tired in the second shot ... knowing how ill you had been and were still suffering the after effects, I am really impressed as to the amount of effort you made in keeping going and taking the time out to meet up with us so soon after getting back :)

.... and yes, of course I am going to say, 'take it easy when you can' ....

Ciao Dhamaka sei bella!!! (yes, you're beautiful!!!)

20th Apr 2008, 18:21

Dhamaka says:

thank you very much guys .. e grazie Mara... I stand corrected although I still think that first shot shows sunken eyes of bigger-than-jam-jar like proportions

Boet - I don't. I sleep sometimes :p

Maggie - if there's no time for friends what's the point of it all..

20th Apr 2008, 21:33

Dhamaka, you look great, relax :)

20th Apr 2008, 21:54

Dhamaka says:

thank you Stella - but I really was quite ill... and got worse before starting to get better


20th Apr 2008, 22:08

You look awesome, especially with what you've been through. I'm a big baby, personally, and I'd be milking it all for the sympathy. It's hard to do that when you look fantastic...
