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

-A serial killer comes into the hospital and the number of deaths go down

Most of you already know about the unjust imprisonment of my friend Lucia.

Last night NOVA TV did this piece on her (select BEKIJK ITEM to watch it). It's about 10 minutes long and although some of it is in Dutch the experts all speak in English. What they say takes up about a third of the programme. It's well worth watching because they'll give you a good idea of what we're up against.

Joker and I have also worked on a translation to English of the front page of the campaign website here or this is a pdf file of the same translation.

If you haven't signed the petition already, please do so.

If you know any journalists please tell them about it too. She needs publicity. she really needs it and she needs it now.

please...

JokerXL says:

Yes, I watched this with great interest last night and my jaw dropped, even after knowing all I know about Lucia's case through translating the website.
Grimbergen was back peddling like mad and Buruma virtually apologised!
If the commission's decision in the next few weeks isn't positive (for Lucia) then there is something very, very strange going on.
As if that weren't already the case.

Sign up guys & gals, read the stuff, watch the clips, tell everyone you know. This is a serious miscarriage of justice and MUST be rectified asp.

Signed the petition, this needs proper investigation .....

Dhamaka says:

Thank you again Joker

I know you did Maggie - saw your name way back - and thank you for doing so. After the programme last night I'm trying to persuade those who didn't to do so. It's also a big part of my life atm

Caine says:

It's a travesty of justice. I signed the petition a while back. I hope this gets an unprecedented amount of publicity and outrage is made known, loud and clear.

Dhamaka says:

thanks Caine, so do I

Dhamaka PLEASE READ THIS says:

it seems that a number of peoples' signatures have somehow not gone through. If you have signed please, please go back to the petition and check your name and signature are still there. If they are not could you please let me know and sign again (you may need to use another email to do so)
