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

I thought that the second one looked like a familar flower. Very nicely captured.

Love the orange-type fruit in the third one - the way it's peeping from behind the leaves.

paintist says:

inspiring relaxing plants...nice office you have :-)

Dhamaka says:

harimanjaro - thank you. They're slightly bitter to taste so I soak them in brandy for a few months before serving them

paintist - The rooftop office garden is the best bit of where I live and the only bit I'll miss. However, assuming I get the requisite sponsorship money and am away for 5 months next year it'll all die anyway :(

Caine says:

Beautiful, all. I especially like the 2nd and 3rd shots. The small citrus is exceptional. Is there no one who could look after things for you?

Lovely series
Orange and citrus trees are fun to grow. The citrus tree I've got was covered in flowers and gave me few lemons which are now soaking in vodka :-). Just need a green house for it in winter
Is it a calistemon on the second shot :-)

Geodyne says:

Callistemon! And I'm pretty sure that your little citrus is a cumquat, based on the glances I've given it when I've been there. I'd have to taste one to be sure, of course...

I keep wondering whether there would be some way I could look after them for you while you're gone...but then I remember that I'll be away for 2-4 of those 5 months, anyway.

i have to say i much prefer the drab walls of my office/lab to those flowers and plant

Very nice shots and a better green thumb

I like brandy.

Dhamaka says:

Minkey / Geo - Callistemon = bottlebrush?

Caine - maybe with Geo's help and other people's I can do it. I just don't think it's right to ask someone to come in to water plants twice a week for 5 months.

Geo - this isn't the same one as was producing all that fruit last year. It is the same one I showed you last time you were down though. However, they're definitely different plants.

Tori - do you indeed

midlife - thank you

FF - it's good to hear you're happy there :/

Hope you will be able to find someone to look after them when you are away, they're such lovely plants ...... enjoy them while you can :)
