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

As you can see, my ability to use a camera decreased drastically over the day. In fact if I had to rate it on a scale of 1-10 where 10 is good I'd say that around 9:00am it was fine - say 8 out of 10. By the end of the day it had decreased to around minus 500


oh yes, and #2 is a candid shot of taniwha, the coffee shop window and a little bit of Nige

A great show she's got going there.
How long have I got to organize a trip up there?

Sorry forgot to say thanks for coming and how pleasant it was to be able to chat. Pity you hadn't time to wander round the corner Joe was just finished and waiting for the girls to arrive and Suze came a few minutes later - was good to see them - didn't stay long ourselves - Beth walked me back to the car. As to 2nd D - 'fraid not have we have Sat 3rd reserved for a meet with Tara and Chris, in M/c at the Lowry - thanks anyway

I like the flip flop ... looks noble in a funny sort of way.

Oh yes, number 2 ... that's me alright.

Dhamaka says:

It was lovely to be there. It's a shame you won't be able to make it - hopefully next time - Have fun at the Lowry

Nige - I didn't move it, just shut the top drawer and shot it where it was

taniwha - Sorry
