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

"Luck favours the prepared mind"
........ Louis Pasteur

"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

Nice that all that happens outside, bringing it to the street, as it were.
(by the way who's that geek-guy dancing with his "gadget", couldn't he get a real girlfriend?)

love the movement of the legs in 2 - 7 . but the top shot is awwwww :-)

FF - since I can't that would hardly be fair (although it's tempting)

Nige - so do I, and the atmosphere in general

Joker - I sincerely hope that he was hired by the organisers because he got in the way of dancers, audience and photographers alike, but I have to say his gadget was ideal for solo video shooting.

Dhamaka says:

paintist - thanks, and yes. I hope I'll be like that at their age. Or older, since they don't actually look that old..

One of the guys I love dancing with was 80 at the beginning of summer. He dances with great style, enormous energy and a fantastic sense of humour

Nice series, I really like the red shoes he's wearing :)

What a lovely day.

Dhamaka says:

thank you guys

Walla_Walla, it was a warm but colourless day. Even the sky was colourless. The fun came from the people and the environment.

Mandy - but you can't find it every day here. Most summer months, though..
