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

"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

Refugee? I trust you deported her with great speed!

Geodyne says:

Hee. My first thought was "bathroom? Who's been fumigating poor spiders?" ;-)

Dhamaka says:

Twiglet - she was deported to the rooftop garden with an interim photo-stop. I was a bit worried for her because she only had 7 legs and seemed rooted to the spot for far too long than seemed healthy, but she has gone now.

Geodyne - I'm not sure what to make of that...

Paintist and Nige... ewww? Spiders are nice!

ViX says:

One of those was crawling up the outside of the back bedroom door at midnight! After a few deep breaths I managed to trap it in a cup and drop it in the bath because I knew it wouldn't be able to crawl out! I still flooded it down the plug hole tho!

Dhamaka says:

She's outside now Spike, so you don't need to worry
The roof garden is very insect-friendly Mandy - far too insect-friendly for my liking..
ViX - call me next time, I'll take her away from you :-)

ViX says:

You can have any that come my way with pleasure!!

there was a f*cker that size in our living room last night. Right when I was ironing, nearly threw the hot steaming device at the bugger! But I refrained, got a pint glass, and deposited it outside. Humanely enough to warrant a handshake from Mr Attenborough.

Ace shots. How big was the spider? It'd be even more impressive if it was actually tiny in real life!

Dhamaka says:

I'll remember that Vix!

Jetblack - if he was that size, I'd have photographed him with a ruler!

Rare - Thank you! Not as small as the one at the end of the Viv posting, She was about 1.5 cm if I remember correctly
