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

PR says:

probably she was driving a car (ferrari coupe) when she made third pic.. I assumed so because of the naturally friendly smiles on their faces hoping that she will get them to the nearest bus stop )

.. never mind.. ))

Dhamaka says:

thank you Caine - it is.. although quite hard work too..

PR, 095 - I like PR's version better (so long as the ferrari isn't yellow) but what happens is I ride as fast as I can to where I think will make good shots, take the shots as they go past then ride like crazy to catch up...

*waves at the peeps on the bikes*

Don't forget, there's chocco cake for when you get back, so keep peddling.

you should ride along at your pace, find good locations, then send the rest back a few hundred yards, much less hard work!

Dhamaka says:

sorry 095 - I think that car is ugly

Sprocket - I'm going on a mega eat-healthy when I'm back because there's too much chocolate and ice cream out here

thanks guys

Joker - err... yes.....
I thought I would have to get in the support bus today but made it! It's so hot out here that everyone's complaining. Except for me. I think the heat is helping my injury :)

did you know any of these fine looking folk before you started?

I am keen to do a similar thing next year - might take BB with me an all

Dhamaka says:

Not the ones in the photo, although a friend did decide to join the tour. I've done a few of these now and FWIW the group tends to be a mixture of couples and singles, few of whom met before the tour
