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...."

For a great couple of days.

It has been lovely sharing a weekend with you especially because, as you know, if you don't count when I've been ill, this is the longest break I've taken from work since the tsunami.

Well, a huge shout out and hurrah to Geo then, for being the lure to you taking some time for yourself. Mental health days are *good* days. :)

And I'll replace these out-of-focus shots with better ones once I'm back at mine and can see what I'm posting...

So am I EvilMink - although I still have a way to go and more habits to change, you can see I've broken the biggest one this weekend..

14th Aug 2006, 11:03

Dhamaka says:

Geodyne says:

Well, this is what I get for actually working when I get to work and not skiving, reading moblog! I've only just seen this.

You're so welcome my dear - it's been simply delightful having you. And as I said, any time. Any and every time the mood strikes you.

Also: I recognise those flowers!

swamprose says:

with you in the struggle, D. wish I could bike over and see Geo and her exploding wonderful hair, eat with Gael and Euphro.

14th Aug 2006, 14:56

Geodyne says:

D decided to be prudent and catch the train home, Swamprose. The weather isn't really conducive to cycling and she decided not to tempt fate...

You are, however, welcome any time you care to come across! We promise to take you cycling!

swamprose says:

thanks. someday soon. have bike, will travel : )

14th Aug 2006, 15:13

Dhamaka says:

we'll find somewhere to go swamprose, here or *elsewhere* ...


*rubs hands with glee*

(edit) err... I didn't actually take the train the whole way Geo...

Geodyne says:

Go you, I'm actually pleased. That at least means you got some exercise for the day.....which is better than I've done!

(Aside from running around doing a zillion jobs at once, that is...)

no rest for the wicked...

dunno about you, but I'm going to have to be seriously wicked in the next life to make up for the no-rest in this one
