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

Nice series! I like 2, 4, 6 and 7 best. :D

Mandy - when you go let me know. Vimbo is a great friend and if he's in the country he'd love to take you round. Of course you may have to do other stuff on your own because his viewpoint is a little quirky at times...

Thank you guys :D

Sprocket - thank you. And thank you for the teas. They look so pretty I'm wondering if I should drink them or just leave them as they are and admire them...

2nd Oct 2006, 06:46

Geodyne says:

The teas *are* pretty, aren't they?

Nige - no, we didn't do the long walk, as it would have been more of a swim.

D, S, and V, thanks also for a great day. It was well worth the delays.

And D, thanks so much for a great weekend. I really enjoyed myself.

2nd Oct 2006, 07:44

a pleasure :D
me too

Looks like a great day.
You do keep yourself busy, don't you D.

Dhamaka says:

Joker - I didn't stop working even at weekends for a couple of years. I'm making up for lost time :P

paintist says:

what a lovely day you had...weather and company....about time you had some weekend fun by the sounds of it :-)

2nd Oct 2006, 09:59

Sprocket says:

It was the packaging of the teas that caught my eye first, but I still think you have to try them rather than just admire them.

p.s. no-one knows what these teas are, so you'd better blog them.

when do we get a taste of the Dhamaka Day Out Club then eh? ;o)

2nd Oct 2006, 11:11

Dhamaka says:

we're thinking the end of this month or up to the middle of next month, jetblack. Trying to co-ordinate with the other people who have expressed an interest, which isn't particularly easy..

2nd Oct 2006, 11:19

Geodyne says:

It's going to have to be the middle of next month, D.

2nd Oct 2006, 11:21

Dhamaka says:

11th / 12th November? Might be difficult for me because it's the weekend after the World Travel Market and I might be chasing up contacts (they usually stay in London for that weekend and then go back to their respective countries) so it's not ideal, but if you don't have any other free time we could make it provisional and pray..

Hopefully the other interested parties will see this and let one of us know. I've another 2 deadlines today and tomorrow so don't think I'll be chatting much

2nd Oct 2006, 11:25

Geodyne says:

November is open at the moment except for the first weekend, so let's work around you.

October is just plain out, I'm afraid!

The others who are interested - opinions on dates?

2nd Oct 2006, 11:38

Dhamaka says:

err... my only really clear weekend in November is the one you can't make, so let's hope that there's not too much for me to do after the WTM

2nd Oct 2006, 11:47

Dhamaka says:

just to make it clear to anyone else who might be interested, we're planning on cycling from Cambridge to Norwich. Anyone is welcome - so is anyone who wants to ride up from London to Cambridge with me the day before as well...

JokerXL says:

On my little "folder"?
Will you let me catch up?
;-)

2nd Oct 2006, 12:10

Geodyne says:

Just pedal harder, man! ;-)

2nd Oct 2006, 12:16

JokerXL says:

The wheels are so tiny, it's only got three gears, the chain needs oiling, the saddle's too high/low/hard, , , ,
(I'll just get all my whinging in now, get it out of the way)
