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.

"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

I was kind of hoping someone else would do that but OK..

the first one says 'don't go there to finish' but there's a play on words so 'going there' is made to sound like 'wash'

the second one is another play on words that could be read as one of several things (I think). These are 'if you can't, take water', 'if you're not going to rot, take a bath' (but the word I think means rot could also mean annoy or be dead and buried. The same word might also relate to modesty or wealthy so it could mean 'if you're not wealthy, take a bath'

I think the last one says 'dont' question, don't ask (for anything but) (re)production'

I think the first two are about the argument between Argentina and Uruguay about paper mills polluting the river. I'm not sure what the last one is about. I could be completely wrong about them too.

I'm hoping that CHESO will be able to explain all of them when she's back from her vacation

Thanks D, my first thoughts on seeing them were that the first three might well be about (water) pollution ... it was the last one that intriqued me ..... especially what I took for the US dollar at the bottom ....

I think that the first one says, pretty much "You're not going to finish it off"; the second, colloquially, says "Imagine if you couldn't drink water"; the third, again colloquially, "Imagine if you couldn't wash"; the last is a bit tougher: I think it says "No questions, don't ask, don't suggest, it's only about making me (i.e. dollars)". "Pudieras", in the middle two, is the second person future subjunctive of Poder, it doesn't have anything to do with rotting :)

You're welcome :)

That's fine; I pretty much read it fluently, even if I stumble when I speak it :)
