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"

"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...."

also known as Bodega Munoz de ToroThis bodega is not finished yet but they still very generously showed me around. It's going to be a beautiful James-Bond style wine spa plus winery plus hotel - and I've been invited back to the opening *huge grin*

'Wine' and 'spa' in the same phrase; sounds like my idea of heaven : )

In Mendoza I tried a wine bath. It's apparently the newest anti-ageing thing. You have a good scrub and then soak in this bath of red wine plus a bit of extra and it's supposed to get rid of the free radicals in your skin. Don't know if it worked - I liked the feel of my skin afterwards but unfortunately so did the mosquitoes

Wow, lovely shot of the grapes!

thanks Euphro. Most grapes just don't have grape-bunch-shapes. And some bodegas deliberately grow them drier so they're not as photogenic but produce a sweeter wine, so it's a bit of a challenge..

Yay vineyards finally!

Nearly right Joker - the problem is to find small enough bunches of the shape you'd expect!

Geo - my sentiments exactly.. Having fun..
