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

Such a lovely, relaxed and smiley shot ........ and please don't let me be the only one who had to bite their tongue to stop themselves making reference to the start of the name of that particular underground station and your position in front of it .... FF, where are you when I need you ;)

28th May 2009, 17:06

thank you all!
some of the (original) facebook comments were less subtle, but
for some reason people have deleted them!
when I have my full range of motion back I have an idea for an entire series at this station :)

29th May 2009, 09:52

Jesson, there are loads of shots of me on moblog. It's just that most aren't on my blog!

You look so beautiful, as always. I hope you get your answers quickly, and are out of support bras even faster.

I've kinda given up on the NHS, most of whose practitioners don't appear to be trained to answer a direct question directly. Luckily I've got YourHermione, Suzi Shoes and am beginning to find other more competent people in the UK and hope to find more.

This is a lovely shot of you. :)

It can be difficult to find a doctor who is straightforward with you. My neurologist brought up surgery again yesterday, but doesn't go out of his way to recommend it to me; he told me he had a difficult patch and scheduled himself for surgery in January, but changed his mind, took about 3 months for his back to settle down. (He has some of the same spinal problems as I do.)
