My facebook

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

You know when you've been working on stuff all day and you can no longer tell what's good, average or really bad?
That's how I feel right now
... time for bed

Time for sleep. I really like the last shot. :)

Dhamaka says:

Thanks midlife. This is another shot and I've cropped it - but vineyards tend to look the same after a while

Indeed Caine and thank you

Drink those wines and read Ficciones, then you tell me

12th Jul 2007, 00:34

Dhamaka says:

drinking and reading - for me, two mutually exclusive actions

heuro says:

...did not say at the same time, did I?

Dhamaka says:


(Borges has been on my list for ages, a sad omission to date, but I don't want to read the translations and it takes so much longer to read in Spanish)

12th Jul 2007, 00:45

heuro says:

you MUST read it in Spanish, no discussion, the book in English is 'another ' book. Go to Baires, stroll along Corrientes and buy a used copy in any of the bookstores there. Then seek shelter in the Faena H+U just in case...

Dhamaka says:

won't be back in BsAs till September. I'll get it elsewhere

wrote about Faena on my last trip, with another 2 pieces to come, shelter - yes, but there's so much to be written about that place that concentration wouldn't come easy

12th Jul 2007, 01:15

heuro says:

cool! Are those trip reports available to the public? Can I read them? Certainly the Faena is top-of-the-top...

12th Jul 2007, 01:46

Dhamaka says:

The Faena is an experience all of its own, for sure..

Almost all of the stuff I write for magazines and newspapers ends up on the internet, I contribute to a couple of websites too but nothing from this last trip seems to have been posted yet.

If you or other moblog friends contact me through the contacts button or by email I'd be happy to email you some of what I've done...

It might even help as an incentive to write what remains...
