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.

........ H G Wells

"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

more of that delicious afternoon tea

frog51 says:

Wow - looks so unnatural, and yet from your tags I'm guessing entirely natural and healthy.

How weird.

Spiderbaby says:

Oh that does look good! Purple looking bread, though I'll bet with not an E number in sight :)

Dhamaka says:

:)
perfectly natural, no E numbers and the only unnatural thing was the price... Although it wasn't too bad for the venue and location, it'd not surprise me to hear that weight for weight it's more expensive than gold

Jane Doe says:

that looks absolutely delish
EDIT marginally disturbed by the fact that you appear to be eating it straight off the garden furniture ; )Can they not stretch to china in these posh places? Trencherman's platters are *so* Dark Ages, darling!

Spiderbaby says:

Are you sure there was no gold leaf hiding in the sandwich? That could explain things...

30th Jun 2008, 20:45

Jane Doe says:

that posh party I went to the other weekend? One of the deserts was chocolate cake covered in gold leaf (honestly)

30th Jun 2008, 20:48

Spiderbaby says:

I can believe it alright. Gold leafing your food was very popular in Elizabethan times (and probably before and since in some circles). Looks pretty but doesn't taste of much and no nutritional value. Now if we were to coat food with rust... :)

Caine says:

Very colourful and sounds delish. I love rye bread, just finished off a loaf of marble rye. Must get more. :)

Laughing at the gold comments.

I remember taking this blogger for chocolate cake garnished with gold leaf a couple of years back and a certain lady turning her nose up at it.....

chocolate cake garnished with gold leaf!!! take me next time!!!

As a rule I avoid any bread that has turned purple or black.

silar31 says:

For a second I thought this was some sort of dessert made with blue corn chips. Which could be tasty, now that I think about it.

harimanjaro says:

On the subject of gold leaf, this cake (clicky) had gold leaf on it, and being the birthday boy I ate it, which apparently makes me posh and/or Elizabethan.

bronxelf says:

This is a terrific photo. Great saturation. I agree with everyone else, it doesn't look real.

crickson says:

I thought it was sushi or something at first...

1st Jul 2008, 03:27

Dhamaka says:

wow - lots of cakey comments!

JD - it was!

Spiderbaby - reasonably sure .. :) Maybe I should go back and check...

JD - this place could best be described as 'eclectic' so the Trencherman's Platter fit well.... but then almost anything else would have fit well too!

Spiderbaby - we'd go red?

Moonraker - it was!

Caine - absolutely!

anon - at least I said no before you ordered it..

Sprocket - it wasn't chocolate sponge, I wasn't interested

095 - dark bread in a dark room :)

harimanjaro - in that case you're missing some of the best Russian rye I've ever tasted (specifically the one that can be purchased in the market square in Cambridge)

Silar - not sure that would have gone with a traditional English tea

harimanjaro again - Elizabethan or not, your cake looks rather tasty nonetheless

B'elf - thank you. If I could get it to you in SL I would

Crickson - about the size of sushi and in the relative dark, so I was pleased with how my camphone handled it

Spiderbaby says:

At least it would contain some iron! (although not in a bio-available form, and it probably wouldn't taste very nice. Best forget that one!)

MogwaiMama says:

That is the richest, most moist rye bread I have ever laid eyes on!

Dhamaka says:

believe me, it was every bit as good as it looks
