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

Fun reflections, bad light, worse food
Although it clearly had a whole host of devoted regulars the best I can say of this place is that it was warm

(on the search for a long-after-midnight local curry house)

:) .... well I do like the reflection pic ... personally I would rather go home and have a hot chocolate drink and a late night toasted cheese sandwich ....

you'd be hard pushed to find a curry house after 10pm in Pembrokeshire! Having experienced many of these places in the past, it does seem that the state of the food is usually inversely proportional to the intensity of your hunger, and the later the hour, the worse they get!

interesting observation PbH - the place that burned down was fantastic at any time of the day or night. Last year, before the Big Burn a friend and I agreed to meet for a pre-Christmas curry there every year. I've been looking for a replacement but time is running out..

Maggie - there's a derring decadence to arranging to meet at a curry house after midnight and I don't think "come over to my place for a hot chocolate and a cheese sandwich" would give the same impression at all...

Nice mirrors to infinity shot... I think if you could see them all you might see your self at a different time. Time travel in your mind?
