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

Hola Kozika!
My last cats, Peter and Purrrsephone before that liked to sit on the laptop and my friends' cats chase the mouse on the screen, too.

I'm going to finish doing what I'm doing and then I'm going to finally find the Horatio - the cat who lives in the appartment where I'm staying.. I won't rest tonight until i catch him on my phone

Sprocket says:

my how Misha has grown – but still just as mischievous

Dhamaka says:

good grief Sprocket - don't you have any work to do?

Yes she is still as mischievous and as adorable even now she's a mother

Geodyne says:

She may well be the sweetest cat in the world.

Possibly second to Hydrox or Cherry - but only because they're both more than twice her size!

I take it you didn't have the heart to evict her?

Dhamaka says:

I *have* to meet Hydrox and Cherry, although I don't think I'd be able to include those two in the same weekend..

From the laptop in this shot? No I didn't at the time, but since last Christmas when she killed the laptop she's sitting on (my fault really - I didn't know she was in, I do know she loves sitting on the laptop and I shouldn't have left a full cup of tea so close), I make very sure that she's out when I'm out now..

Oh Carole
I am but a fool
Darling I love you
Tho' you treat me cruel.

You hurt me
and you make me cry
but if you leave me
I would surely die.

Darling there will never be another
No matter what you do
Don't ever leave me
Say you'll never go.

I will always want you for my sweetheart
No matter what you do
Oh Carol
I'm so in love with you.
