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...."

Didn't feel too well so asked a friend to drive me to the hospital for a consultation with the reconstructive surgeon.

We got lost on the way back. Probably didn't help that I had my eyes shut...

We had to call 540Air to find out how to get back

Oh dear, it's never fun traversing our motorway network at the best of times, is it?

Dhamaka says:

we got lost before even getting to the motorway.. and it's certainly not easy to navigate when you've been curled up in the seat with your eyes shut :)

Is there an equivalent service to OnStar there?

7th Jul 2009, 05:09

Dhamaka says:

Don''t know what OnStar is, but if it's a navigator we had TomTom who didn't help and 540Air who did :)

Glad I could help with a little local knowledge and google maps :)

Geodyne says:

At least you appeared to be on the right side (I hope) of the motorway!

Sending you vibes.

As long as you don't drive with your eyes shut. ;D I hope the consult went well.

Did he do the special SatNav voice too? :)

hope all went well

Dhamaka says:

Spiderbaby - I think he was trying not to last. It takes two people with a really special talent to get lost in a straight line..

thank you guys - It went as well as can be expected when you're talking about me and the NHS

Spiderbaby says:

Straight lines are the worst. Fewer signs to tell you where you are, fewer options to turn off and it's very hard to tell when your "straight line" is actually a curve taking you steadily but surely away from where you need to be!
Glad you fathomed it in the end :)

Dhamaka says:

that's a very good way to think of it. If I may I'll use that in the future :)

and so am I!
