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...."

Sprocket says:

the mushroom tomato combo looked fab!

9th Sep 2006, 09:50

Geodyne says:

*dies of laughter*

Oddly, neither of you are the first women to ask me that....must be something about a woman who cooks!

9th Sep 2006, 09:50

FilbertFox says:

i am a good cook too, i think our kitchen styles might compliment each other

9th Sep 2006, 09:59

moi? rotter?

it is very healthy - for a normal person...


delicious nonetheless

9th Sep 2006, 09:59

Geodyne says:

Sprocket - it is. I love it so muh I eat it every weekend. I am generous enough to feed it to anyone else who happens to be in my house at the time.

FF - you could well be right! Let's find out one day.

D - you're a mutant. :P

Gael says:

Have fun, you two!
I'm skipping breakfast; we have a (not so) little suckling pig cooking and I've just put the chocolate mouse cake to chill in the fridge ...
(with half dozen bottles of wine)

Sprocket says:

re: cook-in

I'm good for shortbread and ice-cream – maple syrup flavour my speciality

Jigalong says:

Those eggs dont look natural. Are they really a greeny blue colour?

9th Sep 2006, 12:20

Geodyne says:

FF: sounds good. Let's make it a weekend soemtime. I can offer my place unless the centre of the moblog universe is considered more convenient!

Sprocket: sounding good.

Gael: Why on earth am I not at your house this weekend?!

Jigalong: Some are blue-green, some are naturally pinky and while they're pastels, they're stronger colours than came up on D's camera. They're from a rare breed. I'll try to blog their colours more accurately one day. They're fabulous eggs.

9th Sep 2006, 12:59

i thought the shots were quite good for a camphone.. :(

but Geo's right, the colours aren't anything like as improbable on my shots as they are in Rl

9th Sep 2006, 13:05

Geodyne says:

Yes, the tomatoes and the mushrooms are added to the habanero and garlic. I used half a hab, cutting just the flesh of the wall off it. I left the seeds behind. My reason for doing that was less heat, and more that including the placenta around the seeds changes the favour.

If you're not sure you can handle the spiciness, just use less pepper - it's more about the citrusy flavour than the heat!

EVILMINK269 says:

Oh man, I'm so inviting myself to breakfast when I make it over hopefully next year ;)

Mmm, mmm. I'll buy the foodstuffs you can cook :)

Dhamaka says:

It really, really was MrIguana

Evil - maybe you should do a culinary tour of mobloggers while you're over. If you start in London and I'm around I can drive you to the next moblogger


10th Sep 2006, 08:28

EVILMINK269 says:


That almost sounds like a plan...But If I'm gonna be eating so much maybe you can find me a bike and we can ride over...

I still have to fit in the airplane seat on the way home :D

Viv says:

this was the point yesterday when I realised my keyboard wasn't working
- which was very frustrating as I couldn't type in - would that be the jaffa cake diet D!
Presumably your jabs on Fri went better than the earlier ones!
see you're having a good weekend!

10th Sep 2006, 09:26

Dhamaka says:

Thanks Viv. Friday's jab seems to have made me occassionally dizzy (but not badly), and I don't feel anything like as bad as I did although I'm going to exhaust Nige's supply of paracetamol soon

and, I'll have you know that the whole point of dieting strictly most of the time is so that I can eat chocolate sponge and jaffa cakes when I want!

EvilMink - you can ride with me any time hehehe

10th Sep 2006, 09:30

I used to use that cutlery when I lived with my Mum!
PS, Dhamaka, could you please come and cook Tabby & I breakfast? We're crap cooks and need help!

12th Sep 2006, 12:26

Dhamaka says:

You're in Norwich aren't you?

Geodyne and I were thinking of riding to Norwich from Cambridge sooner or later, so you might be on...

12th Sep 2006, 15:07

Indeed! Wahey! If you're not familiar with Norwich we should show you to a good watering hole!
PS - mind you, a train derailed on its way from Cambridge to Norwich very early this morning. No-one was hurt thankfully.

12th Sep 2006, 15:57

Dhamaka says:

it's good to hear that nobody was hurt. I'll let you know when we finally organise it and hope you'll both be free. But if and when we do it'll be by bike at least one way..
