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...."
........ Don McCullin

You have the greatest bugs.

I wish it was that easy.

although I suspect that part of the secret is not worrying about what the neighbours think when they open their front door to find you you flat on your stomach on the dirty concrete pointing your phone at something they can't see ...

or, find a really really big cricket and use a box brownie!

Dreadful creatures... But nice macro work there. :)

Dhamaka says:

Thank you Daz, but it's seriously still not coming out the way I want

25th Aug 2006, 16:03

Maybe if you kept the grasshopper in a jam jar, you could over time train it to pose for you so you get the pictures you want from it?

Just a thought

cruel cruel cruel....

There is something a bit odd about SonyE macros - I can leave phone & subject in exactly the same place & get really different results on two successive frames... I think it's like Lomo - just have to accept a certain degree of randomness... :)

Dhamaka says:

a relief to hear that hildegard, but I'm getting it changed on Tuesday anyway (to another k800i) because I'm fed up with losing so many shots that the phone tells me it has saved

25th Aug 2006, 17:30

hildegard says:

We say yah, boo & sucks to shoddy software. :( Fibbing about saving is a randomness too far...

25th Aug 2006, 17:41

Dhamaka says:

tell me :(

25th Aug 2006, 17:57

Love the first shot.

My k750 looses photos too. I think for me it started happening when I bought a 1gig memory card. It's really irritating. Hope the problem's ironed out in the new phone!

25th Aug 2006, 19:46

Dhamaka says:

So do I. It won't be that for me yet, because I'm still waiting for the mem card. Not complaining though, Vodafone has been quite satisfactory with the compensation so far...
