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

6 weeks in Argentina might be enough to do what I had to, but it is nowhere near enough to see or do even a hundredth of what is possible

Gael says:

(and lovely shots, BTW)

Buenos Aires - learning tango (of course), interviewing Zotto, more about Evita, best Argentine spas, follow up something I learned about golf clubs that are made especially for Hotel Llau Llau and would you believe I have a feature on shopping to research (Cheso says she's happy to help)

then Salta for kayaking, white water rafting, something I've forgotten and a cycle tour around the wine trail in Cafayate

then back to Buenos Aires for a day, then back to Blightie

Have a new camera-will shoot Micia when the battery is charged.
She spent all one day in your flat(s)-I couldn't find her & no response to banging a plate-so much for Palov-I think she must be under the bed as I looked every where else. I was nervous lest she decided to produce up there! She looks quite ready! So shall try to keep her out in future! Luv rreallife mum

CHESO says:

I'm back in Buenos Aires! And you? Are you here?
You will miss so much the south, but the north is there, waiting for you...

Hola Cheso
Yes I am here - in Alvear Palace Hotel tonight, in Hotel Dazzler tomorrow and the next night and in the Panamericano (Yay!!) for 2 nights after that.

Blimey, all these photos are great. I especially like the lone bendy tree in the first shot.
