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...."

I can believe it. I'm tempted to go out and try it myself, but don't know if I fancy cleaning up sticky egg mess afterwards.

Teflon - if you work out how to clean it up, please let me know, If it was sticky it would be easier, it's melded with the roof!

I heard the audio on this as it was happening. The egg actually cooked!

EDIT: D was on her mobile to me for much of the time. Puts a whole new meaning to the term moblogging - multi-moblogging!

nige says:

3rd Jul 2006, 15:27

Dhamaka says:

and what is that supposed to mean?

3rd Jul 2006, 15:28

nige says:

its a phrase isnt it?

hot enough to fry an egg on my forehead

i thought it was anyway, but i am a little disturbed, so its quite possible that i just made that phrase up... :P

Dhamaka says:

I'm sorry to hear you're disturbed.
And on office time too...

I don't know - I don't think I've ever heard what comes after ... 'to fry an egg'

maybe some other helpful moblogger can elucidate..

I have done this. We put a frying pan on the roof in the morning then went back up at lunchtime lobbed the egg in and cooked it.

We did eat it, nobody was violently ill..

Egg-Blogg! nice one.
Boy that's gonna stink!

Dhamaka says:

I did it on silver foil last year SFG, as I was going to eat the egg after, but my rooftop is seriously dusty..

It didn't Joker, although even with scrubbing I haven't been able to remove all the traces..
